Total Vehicle Loss
When your car is totaled, your insurer contracts to pay you for your vehicles’ replacement cost. Courts have found that replacement cost includes such items sales tax, vehicle registration fees and fees that are required to be paid by state or local law. Title transfer and license plate transfer fees have also been held to be mandatory fees included in the replacement costs of a total loss vehicle. Fees that are required are part of Actual Cash Vale or ACV and should be reimbursed by your insurer. If you have sustained a total vehicle loss we would be happy to review your settlement documents and the invoice for your replacement vehicle to determine if you are owed additional money.
