How to Recover Damages After a Rental Car Accident
Just like with any other collision, crashes involving rental cars can leave victims with serious injuries. You could be driving on Industrial Park Road, for example, and headed to the George M. Bryan Airport – located at 114 Airport Road, Starkville, Mississippi 39759 – when a rental car runs through a stop sign and T-bones your car. Even if you were rear-ended by a rental car at a low speed, you could still suffer severe injuries, such as whiplash, head trauma, spinal cord injuries, and more.
Before victims of rental car collisions can get their recovery, unique considerations must be taken into account. To clarify the situation and assert your rights to the fullest extent, you should retain a lawyer with experience handling claims with involving rental car companies and their insurance carriers. Multiple policies could be in force, including the renter’s personal auto coverage and any insurance taken out on the rental vehicle itself. Our attorneys are familiar with different types of auto policies and levels of coverage.
Our car wreck attorneys can also assist Starkville residents in validating their claims against the other driver in order to recover damages for your injuries and losses. Negligence can be established by showing that the other driver owed you a duty of reasonable care, breached said duty, and caused you to suffer injuries. Common examples are distracted driving, texting while driving, and speeding.
In regard to your injuries, their nature and severity affect the type of damages to which you may be entitled, but before damages can become the focus of your case, liability must be established. After the establishment of liability, most victims are awarded compensatory damages, which can be broken down into economic damages, which are awarded for monetary losses like medical bills and lost wages, and non-economic damages, which are awarded for abstract losses like pain and suffering and loss of consortium. We have experience fighting for our clients to recover the compensation to which they are legally entitled, both in and out of the courtroom.
