Pearl, MS asked in Bankruptcy and Car Accidents for Mississippi

Q: I’m in a chapter 13 and was involved in a car accident. My car was a total loss . Is there anyway I would be able to

Get the check for the insurance to get another since I’m paying for the car in the bankruptcy ? Since no one will give me a loan to get a car because my credit is low the first thing that shows up is the ch. 13 bankruptcy so it’s an automatic no. Or is there any option out there for someone in my situationim in Mississippi?
