answered on Mar 7, 2022
You may or may not have left out some relevant facts but I will try to answer----if the insurance company is paying a property damage claim for the vehicle then it should pay the titled owner(s) of the vehicle.
I was involved in a car accident on October 2020 in NY, I live in PA and did not hire an attorney because my insurance company said they would take full responsibility, the report said we were both at fault even though the driver cut me off on the opposite side and hit my driver side, I was...

I recieved a letter from car insurance saying they closed my claim. I am still under doctor care. I dont understand why my uninsured/underinsured doesnt cover.
answered on Jan 6, 2022
Your medical bills would be covered first by the medical coverage under your automobile policy, and thereafter by your health insurance. You may have exhausted your medical benefits under your auto policy. If so, your medical provider will need a copy of that exhaustion letter.

I backed into a little tow cart with my car and I did involve my car insurance to make a claim but I want them to cancel my policy and let me pay out pocket for the property damages: so I was wondering how I should go about doing that?
