Baltimore, MD asked in Car Accidents and Insurance Bad Faith for Maryland

Q: How do I get an auto finance company to comply with requests from a GAP insurance company to settle an accident claim?

Auto finance company has consistently failed to provide all necessary documents needed by the GAP insurance company to settle a claim and pay off the balance on the car note. I am being billed for payments for a car that was declared totaled in an accident by my insurance company. This has gone on for over a year.

A: You should speak with an attorney. The auto finance company may be having some internal issues that you do not know about. Additionally, because you're paying on a vehicle that is totaled, the finance company is causing you to incur economic damages which you may be able to recover.
