GAP insurance
GAP insurance, which stands for Guaranteed Asset Protection insurance, is a type of coverage that can help protect you financially if your car is declared a total loss or stolen, and there is a difference between the amount you owe on your car loan or lease and the actual cash value of the vehicle. It is an optional insurance policy that can provide peace of mind and bridge the gap between what you owe and what your car is worth in the event of a significant loss.

    How Does Guaranteed asset protection insurance Work?

    GAP insurance primarily covers the "gap" or difference between the amount you owe on your car loan or lease and the actual cash value of your vehicle at the time of a total loss. This coverage is especially relevant for individuals who have financed their vehicle, as cars typically depreciate rapidly in the early years of ownership. If your car is declared a total loss, the insurance company will typically only pay the actual cash value, which may be lower than what you owe. GAP insurance can help cover the remaining balance, preventing you from being financially responsible for the gap.


    What Should I Do If I Don’t Have GAP Coverage?

    Without GAP insurance, you may find yourself in a difficult financial situation if your car is deemed a total loss. In such cases, you would still be obligated to pay off the remaining loan or lease balance even though you no longer have the vehicle. This could leave you burdened with significant debt. GAP insurance acts as a safety net, ensuring that you are not left with a financial burden in the event of a total loss.

    Dealing with insurance companies can be complex and challenging. When it comes to filing a claim for a total loss, the insurance company may try to minimize their payout or undervalue your vehicle. This is where a car accident lawyer can be invaluable. An attorney understands the tactics used by insurance companies and can negotiate on your behalf to ensure that you receive fair compensation for your total loss, including the gap amount covered by your GAP insurance policy.


    Can an Attorney Help Me Recover Other Accident Related Damages?

    Yes. In addition to handling the GAP insurance aspect, a car accident lawyer can help you maximize your overall compensation for all accident-related damages.

    They can assess the full extent of your losses, including:

    • Medical costs
    • Property damage
    • Lost wages
    • Loss of consortium
    • Pain and suffering
    • Loss of earning capacity
    • Emotional distress

    And more.

    By thoroughly evaluating your case, an car accident attorney can build a strong claim and fight for the maximum settlement you deserve.


    What If I Don’t Have Knowledge of Insurance laws?

    Insurance policies, claim procedures, and legal regulations can be complex and overwhelming for individuals without legal experience.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
