Common Questions after a Car Accident

Since we only practice in personal injury law, the vast majority of our cases involve car accidents. Chances are we’ve already successfully handled a case identical to yours—even against the same insurance companies.

Here are the most common questions that people ask us after an accident:

How can I get a rental car?

If you’ve been in an accident, other than your injuries, one of your immediate concerns is probably how to get a rental car while you are waiting for your car to get repaired or replaced.

After an accident, you can typically get a rental car from either:

  1. Your own insurance company (if you have rental car coverage); or
  2. The at-fault party’s insurance company

If you have rental car coverage, your own insurance company can probably get you in a rental car faster than the at-fault party’s insurance company. This is because the other insurance company will only put you in a rental car after they have completed their investigation of the accident and accepted responsibility.

If you don’t have rental car coverage, you have no choice but to wait for the at-fault driver’s insurance company to finish their investigation and admit fault. If you are in this situation, it may take a few days or weeks after your accident for the insurance company to do so.

We know what an inconvenience it can be to not have access to a vehicle—especially when you didn’t cause the accident! We will do everything we can to make sure that the insurance company compensates you for the days that you did not have a car.

Do I have to give a recorded statement before I can get a rental car?

Sometimes, the other insurance company will ask you for a “recorded statement” before offering you a rental car. Be very cautious of doing a recorded statement for the insurance company—they will often use it against you later. For this reason, we recommend that you seek the advice of a lawyer before doing one.

Whether you decide to get a rental car from your insurance company or the other driver’s insurance company, it is important to return the vehicle as soon as the insurance company tells you to do so—you are required to return the rental car as soon as your car has been repaired or the insurance company has given you a fair offer to replace your vehicle. If you fail to promptly return the car, you will be responsible for the additional rental charges.
