Cars today are built with less heavy metals than in the past. As such, it doesn’t take much of a hit to render the vehicle unsafe to drive. Without another form of transportation individuals are unable to go to their doctor’s appointments, work or other daily activities. After a NC car accident it is very common for the insurance company to delay in securing a rental vehicle for the injured party. There are a number reasons behind this but one rational held by the insurance companies is saving money. However, most people (and lawyers) are unaware that people are entitled to compensation if they are not given a rental car.
Do I get a rental car? If so, when?
After you are involved in a Charlotte NC car accident the law entitles you to compensation for the loss of use of your vehicle. This is typically calculated using a dollar amount per day for the loss of use. Many car insurance companies, to escape paying the individual directly for their loss of use pay for a rental vehicle. Many people involved in a NC car accident do not realize however, that they are entitled to be compensated for the time between the accident and the time they get a rental vehicle. Our NC Personal Injury lawyers can explain your rights to you and ensure you are not taken advantage of by the insurance company.
