No a lien holder can not file a claim against the insurance company as they are not the named insured, you are. Although if there is a lien on the vehicle the insurance payment for damages to your vehicle will be in your name and the lien holder name.

They then might require that you fix the vehicle so they can protect their interest in the vehicle. each lien holder is different.

CORRECTION: If the lien holder is named on the policy and the vehicle has been repossessed, the lienholder has a right to recovery under that policy.

Is your boyfriend listed as a driver on your auto policy? Does he live with you? If you do not have him listed as a driver on your policy and he is a regular driver or if he resides with you he must be listed as a driver on your policy. This is a part of your policy terms. If you do not abide by the policy terms the company can deny the claim due to material misrepresentation. This means if you lie to them they don't have to pay the claim.
