Not as such. What you owe on your vehicle has nothing to do with the auto insurer’s liability, except to the extent that the lienholder is usually named on the policy as a loss payee.
If your vehicle is deemed a total loss in a covered incident under comprehensive such as a fire, theft, etc. then the insurance company will pay per the terms of the policy. As stated in the policy, the insurance company has the option to repair, substitute, or pay the actual cash value of your vehicle. Actual cash value will be paid if the reasonable cost of repair exceeds a stated percentage of the actual cash value of the vehicle. That percentage is usually set by state law. Actual cash value harshly equates with market value of a similar vehicle in similar condition and similarly tooled.
If the vehicle is proclaimed a total loss, the insurer will pay the lienholder very first and if the car is worth more than the loan balance the remainder will be paid to the insured. If the loan balance is more than the value of the vehicle, and thus, what the insured pays, the insured is responsible for the balance. then you have a problem. The company will pay the entire amount to the loan company but then you will still owe the balance to the loan company or bank.
One of the ways to protect yourself from being responsible for the difference inbetween what the insurer pays and the balance on the loan, is through GAP insurance. It is a separate policy, for a separate premium. It pays the difference inbetween the insurance settlement and the amount remaining on the loan. It is usually suggested when the car is purchased and financed, but can generally also be obtained after the fact from a property and casualty insurance agent.

Will your premium go up if you file a claim on your comprehensive auto insurance policy?
It truly depends on the circumstances of the claim, and if you were at fault. If you were at fault, and you need to use your comprehensive/collision to pay for your damages you very likely will be looking at a noticeable increase unless you are over 35 and have never had an accident it may only go up by a few dollars here and there. If you weren’t at fault but require the use of your coverage to pay for your own damages because the other person had no insurance depending on the severity you MAY be looking at an increase but depending on how much coverage you elected or how high your deductible is it may not increase. Like I said it varies from case to case and rules, regulations are a fluid thing often arched and not followed up with. There’s no definite for every script. Hope this helps.
What is collision and comprehensive on an auto insurance policy?
I am a licensed insurance agent. Comp is if your vechile is stolen, or bruised by something other than a car which you will have to pay the dec. Coll is if you get into a car accident and say the person did not have insurance then your coll would kick in. But in most cases there property harm will cover you depending on the state. I am from Florida and it is a no falt state so it doesnt matter. You need to check with your agent and see your dectibable.

No individual responsibility for reading the policy or at least the declarations summary page, just sue. So now we don’t say utter coverage any more, we name each coverage separately.
