(Goose Creek, SC)

An elder lady hit our car 2007 Grand Marqui, We still owe $18,000 It is possible her insurance company will total the car.

What will the insurance pay, are they liable for the payoff, or can we make them fix it, please we need advice.

We were planning to have this car for a very long time. There was nothing wrong with it prior to this accident.


Hello Jeannette,

The car will be totaled depending on its fair market value and the amount of damages. You cannot make them fix it if it as a total loss.
