a fraction of it gets salvaged


Senior Member
In case your car gets totaled, and only a fraction of it gets salvaged [[during {OptionValue}]] , this plan insures you are paid either the purchase value of your car, or the value of a brand new replacement model (which is lower).

What the meaning please of this part of the phrase "only a fraction of it gets salvaged"?

    You found the word 'totaled' in an insurance policy document? I'm astounded.
    My experience with cars is either it is salvaged or it is not, so I don't understand the context. It seems more applicable to cargo.
