Lately, at-fault drivers’ insurance companies are denying rental cars while the victims’ vehicles are being repaired. This is a new tactic which places people in a bad situation. Most people are unable to afford several weeks’ worth of car rental fees, especially if they have been seriously injured and are unable to work because of an accident.
You need to buy coverage on your own vehicle to avoid having to pay out of pocket while your case is pending. Rental reimbursement coverage is not included in standard mandatory car insurance coverage and must be added as an additional coverage.
