Rental Car Accident Attorney

Many people who rent cars waive the rental company’s supplemental insurance because they simply do not believe they will be involved in an accident. However, the chances of someone else’s negligence causing an accident are just as great when you are driving a rental car.

Car accidents can be even more distressing in rental cars, especially if the vehicle is damaged and you have suffered injuries. Also, when you have rented a car, it usually means you are in an unfamiliar city with unfamiliar traffic and accident laws.

While car rental companies usually have insurance policies for things like car accidents, their insurance adjusters will do all they can to offer you the smallest settlement they can. Car rental companies don’t always provide protection or indemnification to renters through the rental agreement.

Some of the popular rental companies include:

  • Enterprise
  • Hertz
  • National
  • Thrifty
  • Alamo
  • Avis
  • Budget
  • Dollar

Being in a car accident caused by a rental car driver can be more complicated than other crashes. The challenge is ensuring that you receive full recovery of your losses.

If you’ve been in an accident in a rented vehicle and you waived the supplemental coverage offered by the rental car company, you may have to fight with your own insurance company to try to cover the damage.

Rental automobile accident victims usually lose this battle and find that the rental car company ends up coming directly after the individual to pay for the property damage.  Call our office at (210) 298-6666 to schedule a free case evaluation today.
