Car accidents can happen at any time, including when you or someone else is driving a rental car. Many people rent cars while on vacation or on a business trip. The last thing people are thinking about while on vacation is getting into an automobile crash. They’re just trying to enjoy themselves and take a break from their busy lives. At other times, people rent trucks in order to move their belongings from home to college or elsewhere. Regardless, if someone’s driving a rental car or truck they likely are less familiar with the vehicle itself and the area in which they are driving. This can potentially increase the likelihood of being involved in a motor vehicle collision.
Oftentimes when a person is involved in a rental car accident things instantly get more complex than other types of car crashes because the case can involve multiple parties and insurance companies. In addition to the people directly involved in the accident, the rental car company and its insurance company usually get involved. Rental agreements and insurance policies can be complex, and so the negotiations surrounding the accident can get quite confusing. It’s important to get a lawyer who is experienced in dealing with rental car accidents and personal injuries who can help you early on in the process to begin protecting your rights and interests immediately.
