    sue the shit out of her. an isurance company is not a judge or the final say so . take the whole dam thing to court.

    No, the insurance usually pays for SOME of the rental (like $10 per day for max of a week or two).

    But that does NOT mean that the drunk driver is legally bound by this rule. You really have to talk with YOUR own insurance agent.

    Good Luck…

    the insurance co should pay for car rental

    Her insurance company should pay for a rental until yours is out of the shop and you should not have to pay for it. The accident was the fault of their client. contact her insurance company and tell them you need a rental car.

    Well rental car falls uder your parents car. In the event of an accident thats not your fault, most insurance companies will give you a set amount of money per day to use on a rental. This is usually only if you added this coverage though. I don’t think you’ll be able to go after the other person for rental car payment unless you take them to court or something and try and get it that way, usually thats what the insurance company deals with, and if they aren’t going to help you get your money back, you’ll have to pay all the legal fees yourself and go after the driver. Talk to your insurance company about it, see what they say, maybe they can help you get that rental car $$$ back.

    Not necessarily. Some insurance companies will cover such things, some won’t. And even the ones that cover have restrictions as to amounts and time you can have the rental. And there has to be a demonstrated need also. If the injured party has 3 cars and can drive one of the others while their is being fixed, they won’t cover rental.

    Bottom line is this, if they really need on they should rent one, and once they get their car back put in a claim for the rental. But it has to be a like car. They can’t have their Honda worked on and rent a Cadillac.

    Your best source of information and advice will be your own agent.
