Car rentals are convenient whether your traveling or your car is getting repaired. When you rent a car, you sign a complicated contract that involves a lot of information about liability for damage to the car. You also have different options for rental car insurance, including your own auto insurance, coverage provided by a credit card, or coverage provided by the rental company.
If you do get into an accident in a rental car or get hit by a rental car, the resulting insurance claims process can be a nightmare. You do not want to risk facing unnecessary liability or not receiving the compensation you deserve for your losses. Contact a rental car lawyer in Greensboro for help today.
Who is Liable for Your Losses?
Many rental car drivers are unfamiliar with the area, which can lead to distraction and erratic driving, which can lead to accidents. When a driver of a rental car hits you, the nature of the insurance claim will depend on the type of insurance coverage the driver selected at the time of the rental.
If someone else hit you while you were driving a rental car, you will need to file a claim with the driver’s insurance. However, the rental company may try to hold you liable for any damage to the vehicle, which you need to fight. You should not have to pay for any damage or medical bills if another party caused the crash.
