Accidents in a Rental Car
Understating what to do after a car accident can be confusing enough. However, it can become even more overwhelming when your accident involved a rental car. If you are injured in a car accident in a rental car, you need to contact the Orlando, Florida accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Michael Barszcz as soon as possible. We will conduct a thorough investigation into your accident to help determine negligence and liability, and we will make sure your rights are protected during this difficult time.
Insuring Rental Cars
When you rent a car, you are given the option to purchase collision coverage. Even if you declined this service, it is possible that your personal insurance policy covers rental cars. This may be adequate to cover the property damage to the rental car, but will most likely not be enough to compensate you for any serious injuries that you have sustained.
Florida is a “no fault” state. This means that drivers involved in car accidents must seek compensation from their own insurance company regardless of fault. Florida’s no fault law mandates that every driver carry a minimum of $10,000 per person/crash for personal injury and $10,000 per accident in property damage coverage. While this amount may be enough to compensate the rental car company, injuries sustained in car accidents often have far reaching, long-term medical, financial, and personal consequences that greatly exceed this small dollar amount.
Our Florida attorneys have years of experience helping victims of car accidents recover damages caused by their injuries. Insurance companies will do everything possible to minimize your settlement. When your accident involves a rental car, they may even sink to exploiting your ignorance of your rights. We will stand by your side during every part of the claims process, going all the way to trial when necessary to ensure you are provided with the full compensation you deserve.
