Avis Car Accident
Every year, California witnesses 6 million car accidents; a small percentage of these accidents are caused by rental cars. Individuals who are looking for an alternative vehicle for a temporary period, rent a car from rental agencies. They may be tourists looking for a vehicle to travel around in the state or maybe individuals whose cars have got damaged in an accident or have gone for servicing and repairs. People looking to avoid public transport like buses and trains or not in favor of hiring taxis, prefer rental vehicles from companies like Avis. Avis rents are very cheap, costing less than $100 for a week.
Victims of rental car accidents are unsure how to go about and claim for their damages. Handling a lawsuit against rental car companies is complicated, you may require the help of experienced rental car accident attorneys like Khashan Law firm to represent your case.
Any individual wanting to rent a car needs to have a valid driver’s license, valid auto insurance and should be over the age of 21.
Although a driver may be required to have his/her own personal insurance coverage, Avis rental car agency will likely offer you also offers some additional coverage against an accident. This coverage is generally bare minimum or comprehensive.
Causes Of Rental Car Accidents
If you have been involves in a car accident, it is important to determine who the driver was and whether the car was a rental car or a privately owned vehicle. If you were hit by a rental car, you need to determine whether the accident happened because of reckless driving or was there an issue with the rental car. Many times the accidents occur due to faulty car parts or malfunctioning of the vehicle. Rental agencies do not maintain and service the cars as required, resulting in poor vehicle performance and accidents. In such cases the rental car agencies can be held responsible for the damages suffered by the victim.
