No Fee Unless We Win.
After you’re in a car accident, you might be wondering whether you are allowed to get a rental car and who will pay for the rental car? This depends on the insurance involved. Normally, the at-fault insurance company should be pay for the rental for a reasonable amount of time. However, things can get complicated if the body shop is delayed in repairing it or doesn’t have the parts to fix your car because the at-fault insurance company won’t pay for the rental forever. If that happens, or worse, if the driver who hit you has no car insurance, then your only option is to look to your own car insurance company. This means you have to figure out if you purchased rental insurance on your car. This is something you have to do on your own. If you didn’t purchase this coverage on your car, then your insurance company doesn’t have to provide you with a rental car. So, to summarize, yes you are allowed to get a rental car, but you have to follow the at-fault insurance company’s rules in terms of how long you get to keep it and where your car will go to the body shop. If the driver who hit you has no car insurance, then you will have to see if your own car insurance has a rental option.
