“How do I get a rental car?”
If the other driver is at-fault and his/her insurance company accepts liability, then the at-fault driver’s insurance company should provide you with a rental vehicle during the time your vehicle is being repaired or until you receive a check for the value of the vehicle. An issue can sometimes arise when the other driver’s insurance does not accept liability. The other driver’s insurance company has a right to do an investigation to ensure that their insured is actually at-fault. If you need a rental vehicle during this time frame, you can either contact your own insurance company and see if you have rental coverage, or you can pay for a rental vehicle out-of-pocket and submit the receipts to the at-fault driver’s insurance company when they accept liability. If your vehicle is damaged and unusable and you cannot afford to rent a vehicle on your own, you may be entitled to loss-of-use compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
How Do I Handle Property Damage?
Even if you walk away uninjured after a car accident, there is still a high probability your vehicle was damaged. We recommend our clients handle their own damage claim. It’s important to note your personal injury claim and your property damage claim are two separate issues. Generally speaking, an attorney’s involvement in your property damage claim will have little-to-no impact on the outcome and could delay the process.
