Macon Rental Car Accident Lawyer

If you’ve been injured by someone driving a rental car, it’s a difficult situation. You not only have medical bills to worry about but you may also experience lost income while you take time off the job to recover – and the physical and emotional pain and suffering you endure adds an additional layer of complexity. This is not to mention the fact that you may have to seek compensation from multiple insurance sources. If you’ve been injured by the negligence of someone behind the wheel of a rental car, you should not hold off on consulting with an experienced Macon rental car accident lawyer.

Multiple Insurance Sources

The negligent motorist behind the wheel of that rental car may have a variety of insurance policies that will need to be explored to ensure you receive the compensation to which you are entitled. Consider all the following:

  • The driver’s own car insurance policy will cover him or her for liability, but if he or she doesn’t have a car of his or her own, this option is off the table.
  • The car rental company will generally include some minor liability coverage with the rental, but this typically isn’t robust enough to cover much more than a fender bender.
  • The driver can purchase supplemental liability insurance (SLI) from the car rental company, which is coverage that’s designed to cover claims made by third parties (such as when someone in a rental car leaves another driver injured).
  • While the credit card that the other driver uses to pay for the rental can offer considerable coverage, it’s very unlikely to include liability that would help cover your losses.
