How to Deal with a Totaled Car That is Now a Junk Car
There are few things quite as distressing as experiencing a car accident. Unfortunately, the accident itself is often only the beginning. Once the dust has settled, you’re faced with a vehicle that’s suffered some kind of damage. Sometimes, the damage to your car is particularly severe. In fact, many vehicle owners end up having to sell their junk car after it’s been in a major accident.
We know that trying to figure out the next steps following an auto accident isn’t easy, and that’s why we’ve put together this blog post to walk you through some of your options. Keep reading to learn more.
Reimbursement from Your Insurance Company
Following an accident, you’ll hear from your insurance company (or the at fault driver’s insurance company) regarding the value of your vehicle. After the value has been determined, the insurance company can decide whether or not your vehicle should be officially considered “totaled,” which is short for a “total loss.”
If your car is deemed a total loss, the insurance company will write you a check for whatever they’ve determined its value to be. It’s hard to say in advance what this amount will actually come to — and sometimes it’s a lot less than you would’ve hoped for. Remember that if you’re at fault in an accident, you can only receive reimbursement from your insurance company if you have the right kind of coverage.
Repair Your Vehicle
If your car was only slightly damaged, it may not be totaled. Instead, it might be possible to fix it and get it back in running condition for a minimal amount of money. This option sometimes makes sense with older vehicles, where the reimbursement value for a totaled vehicle would be quite low.
Drive Your Vehicle As-Is
In some instances, your car may not have suffered any real damage at all: maybe a dent in the bumper, or something equally minor. In these cases, it’s up to you whether you want to keep driving it without making any repairs. Keep in mind, though: if your vehicle is severely damaged, driving it on the open road may be illegal due to its condition.

On that note, though, it’s worth remembering that you can always sell your junk car — no matter what kind of shape it’s in. Junk A Car will gladly pay you cash for your totaled vehicle. Call us today at 844-901-4392 to find out more.
