Thrifty rental car accident
Rental vehicles are used by tourists and travelers in most of the major cities of USA. With the increase in the number of cars being rented, there has been a spike in the number of car accidents too. Rental car accidents happen due to a number of reasons, however the most common reason is negligent driving. People driving rental cars are generally tourists or visitors, they are not familiar with the local laws, roads, and driving tendencies of other drivers, this can make driving a rental car confusing. Thrifty is a popular rental car agency, if you or your family member has been involved in a Thrifty rental car accident contact us at Khashan Law to get a free, confidential consultation regarding your case.
Some of the major reasons for a Thrifty rental car accident are:
- Searching a route or location on the GPS or smartphone while driving
- Typing or calling while driving
- Over Speeding
- Changing lanes without giving the right signals
- Merging on the freeway slower than the expected speed
- Driving under intoxication of drugs or alcohol
- Running stop signs and traffic lights
- Malfunctioned car parts like brakes or tires etc.
- Car not being serviced regularly to maintain it
These reasons can lead to rear-end accidents or head-on collisions on the road. Some rental car hirers do not take driving a rental car as seriously as driving their own car, as they do not own the vehicles and do not have to worry about the repairs of the car in case of a mishap. A tourist or visitor may end up crashing a rental car, but he doesn’t have to worry about the mechanic costs or worry about alternate transportation, as they can hire another car or use their own car back in their home town.
