Causes of Rental Car Crashes
If you’ve been injured by another driver’s negligence in a rental car accident, that negligence can take a variety of forms, including:
- A driver who’s distracted by anything other than driving safely (smartphone usage has become an increasingly prevalent distraction)
- A driver who is impaired by alcohol and or drugs
- A driver who doesn’t carefully adhere to the rules of the road (driving at excessive speeds is a common example)
- A driver who is dangerously drowsy behind the wheel
Driver negligence often plays a pivotal role in rental car accidents.
When it comes to rental car accidents, deciphering which insurance policy is in play is generally the first consideration. The insurance basics include:
- The car renter is offered the option of purchasing additional insurance during the payment process. Depending upon what he or she chooses, if anything, this coverage can be quite robust. Additionally, some standard coverage typically comes with the car rental.
- The credit card used by the car renter generally provides some additional but limited coverage
- The at-fault driver’s personal policy may pick up where the other policies end, but there can be considerable overlap between this personal coverage and the coverage purchased upon rental.
