How do you get insurance to pay for a totaled car?

You can get insurance to pay for your totaled car if the estimated repairs are too costly to retain the value of the vehicle. You'll receive a settlement payment a few days after the payout value is determined, but that payment will go to your lender to cover the cost of the car if you're financing.
