FAQ: Who Pays for the Rental Car After my Car Accident?

  The at-fault driver, and correspondingly that person's insurance company, is required by law to pay you the value of the time that you lost on your car. Often what they will do is make arrangements with the rental car company to provide you with a rental car. So, you will want to call the insurance adjuster and make those arrangements when your car goes into the shop. Now, it's important that you understand the law says comparable vehicle. So, if you have a minivan, a comparable vehicle would not be a smaller four-door sedan. The at-fault insurance company is required to get you a comparable vehicle, such as another minivan or an SUV that would fit your family.
