In most cases, a rental car accident is similar to other types of Phoenix car accidents, except when it comes to property damage to the rental car. Still, there is no reason you should try to navigate the insurance claims process on your own.
An attorney from Zanes Law will prepare your case, demand a fair payout from the insurer, and take your case to court if necessary to get the compensation you need to cover your damages. Call (833)-890-8329 today for your no-cost consultation and sign up for our services.
Rental Car Insurance and Property Damages to the Vehicle
As long as you have some type of rental car insurance, it should cover the repairs to the car. There are generally three options for this type of coverage:
- Coverage through your credit card company
- Coverage through your personal car insurance policy
- Coverage provided by the rental car company
In general, these are liability policies that cover damage to the vehicle if you are at-fault in an accident. In some cases, one of these policies may be willing to cover the cost so you can pay the rental car company, and then they will attempt to recover the expenses from the at-fault driver’s insurer through a process called subrogation.
If this is not possible, we can manage communications with the rental car company while we pursue a payout from the insurance company on your behalf.
