San Diego Rental Car Accident Lawyers for Out-of-State Travelers
Rental car agreements contain numerous waivers, releases and consents, which can make it extremely difficult for you to quickly resolve your claim. If the driver who was at fault in your case does not have adequate insurance and you need to pursue claims against the rental company in order to fully recover your losses, without knowledgeable representation it can be next to impossible to do so. Although not every rental car accident case involves a claim against the rental company, it is an avenue that you should at least consider before settling for an unsatisfactory resolution to your claim.
For out-of-state travelers, there can also be various home state insurance issues and other complications that make it best to hire an experienced attorney to represent you.
Local Rental Car Accident Attorneys in San Diego
Like any car crash case, one of the most important steps in the insurance settlement process for rental car accidents is the accident investigation. As a non-resident, it will be very difficult (if not impossible) for you to directly participate in and oversee this part of the process. Our San Diego rental car accident attorneys and staff conduct thorough investigations in each and every case, and we will leave no stone unturned in developing the facts for your claim for compensation.
That said, there are things you can do to help yourself following a rental car accident. These include:
- Seek immediate medical treatment – even if you feel fine, you may still have serious injuries, and it may be unsafe to travel back home.
- Take photographs of the accident scene and write down what you remember – this information can be invaluable in helping you recall details that might otherwise get lost in the chaos following the accident
- Avoid speaking with insurance adjusters without legal counsel – insurance adjusters will often try to pin you down with recorded statements and attempt to settle for unreasonably low amounts before you know the full extent of your injuries and other losses.
