Contact a local attorney to give you advice because the facts don't make sense unless there is a clause in your policy excluding coverage in that situation.

CALL YOUR INSURANCE AGENT AND ASK HIM IF YOUR POLICY COVERS THEFT OF YOUR CAR. IF NOT, YOUR ONLY CONSOLATION IS TO SUE THE CAR THIEF. BEST OF LUCK.

Failing to pay and refusing to pay are different things. Your post suggests failure, not refusal. Maybe your claim just slipped through the cracks at the insurance company. Discussing this with your insurance agent is a good idea. If that doesn't yield the desired result, before incurring the expense of hiring a lawyer, I suggest that you demand payment from the insurance company formally in writing. The insurer will then be required, within a time specified by law, either to pay your claim or to deny it and state the reasons for denial. If they either deny it or continue to ignore you, consult a lawyer.
