How does the insurance company determine the value of your car when it’s totaled?

My car just got into an accident and it looks like it’s totaled. But before I work everything out with the ins co, I need some advice. I only ask because the car is only 9 months old. I hear that state farm will just write a check for the value of the car, not replace it with a new car. Is that how it works? And if so, how do I figure out how much is a fair deal with state farm, since I really need to make sure I get the max that I can because I have to pay off my loan and still get a down payment for a new car. I looked on the Kelley Blue Book but was confused by the three different categories of cars. If anyone knows how this works in Illinois or just in general, I could really use some info and advice. And before you write me off as an idiot for totaling my new car, please know that my mom took it w/o my permission and got hit by a drunk driver, so please help me if you can cause i’m already overwhemled!!

Rental car insurance?

I just sold my car (02/04) and am trying to rent a car until I buy the new car (02/05-02/15). What happens to the auto insurance that I had with the car that I just sold (I paid the coverage until 02/16). Was it automatically terminated when I sold my car? Since my policy covers the insurance for the rental car too, if it will continue until 02/16, I don’t have to pay for additional rental insurance at a rental shop (I believe I paid around $13 per day before). Also, does debit cards (from local banks) also usually cover the insurance for the rental car too (I know most of credit cards do that).

If you buy a car in full do you need to have collision coverage in your car insurance?

If you buy the car in full (pay for the car at once, not lease or financed) do you need to have collision coverage? If I get into an accident with somebody, wouldn’t the other person’s insurance pay for my car’s damage? I’m planning to buy a used car for $17000 (paying in full) should I get collision coverage? also somebody explain Liability and full coverage for me (I guess full coverage is selecting every coverage when you lease for finance your car).

Will my Insurance go any higher if paid off by Collision ?

I bought my Acura in 2006 and have been in mint condition since then. Recently, the snow plougher scratched my car and didnt leave a note. I called the manger of the snow plougher and filed the police report. He took the responsibility but during the report he said that he will give the name of the driver and vehicle later. After few weeks when I didnt hear I called the manager and he said his company will not cover anything and I can do whatever I can…. I called my insurance company and they are willingly to cover through my insurance – Collision, instead of comprehensive. The repair is $2000 + rental car for 9 days ~$2500. My deductible is $100 for collision and $50 for comprehensive. Do you think if they use Collision my insurance rate will go higher ? [Ofcourse I dont have any choice at this time. my insurance company said they cannot file a lawsuit or anything against the snow plougher company]
