Ask Regina

Q. My customer was involved in a not-at-fault accident and the car is a total loss. The payoff is higher than the value of the car. Is the at-fault party responsible for the amount left on the loan?

A. No. The at-fault party is only legally liable for the actual cash value of the vehicle. That’s why you should consider offering Gap Coverage to every customer that adds a vehicle that is financed.
