My semi truck got totaled on a reck, insurance didn't want to pay the 20000 for tow and storage because it was my drivers fault to. Don't have full coverage neither. Can't afford to pay them. What would happen??
If the insurance refuses to pay and you don't have a collision policy on that truck the tow yard will file a lien and in time submit a claim for the title and sell the salvage. If the truck is a total loss you might choose to sign over the title to the tow yard so they can sell the salvage for the charges. Or you can try to negotiate with the tow yard and they are tough to deal with. Or you go see an attorney to see if they think they can make the insurer change it's mind. Good luck.

They will send a letter indicated their intent to sell it auction. By then, their storage and administrative costs will far exceed what they now demand. You can lawyer up and fight them, or try to negotiate with them.
