Macon Georgia Rental Car Accident Lawyer
Rental cars can help make your life earlier – by providing you with wheels when you’re out of town and by acting as a substitute for your own car when it’s in the shop. With all that convenience, you probably don’t think much about how car accident claims involving rental cars play out – unless this is the unfortunate position you find yourself in. If the negligence of someone behind the wheel of a rental car leaves you injured, it’s in your best interest to work closely with an experienced Macon rental car accident lawyer.
How Rental Car Accident Claims Differ
The primary difference between rental car accident claims and any other car accident claim is that it may involve more than one insurance provider, which can amplify the associated challenges considerably. The following insurance basics apply:
- If no other insurance coverage is involved, your accident claim will go through the at-fault driver’s personal coverage just like any other car accident would.
- The person driving the rental car received some coverage upon renting the vehicle, although this is unlikely to include liability coverage, which would apply in your claim. Rental companies, however, offer supplemental liability coverage for purchase, and if the driver opted in, this coverage could play a primary role in your claim.
- The credit card that the at-fault driver used to pay for the rental may also offer some coverage – and more considerable coverage for purchase. If the driver bought additional coverage (or if the card offers robust coverage as a perk), this too might factor into your claim.
