Retain the Salvage
Many vehicle owners release their totaled vehicle to their insurance company and receive the full settlement in cash. However, if you are not satisfied with the settlement your insurance company is offering you may have the option of keeping your vehicle and receive a smaller cash settlement in return. Your insurance company will deduct the amount the vehicle is worth in its damaged condition and give you the balance in cash.
