One of the greatest concerns our clients have following a wreck is how to go about getting a rental car. Insurance companies make it more an more difficult for car wreck victims to obtain a rental after a car wreck. In our video, we answer the following questions:
- How do I get a rental when someone else caused the wreck, and they have insurance?
- Why is the insurance for the at-fault party disputing liability?
- What should I do if the insurance company for the other driver won’t provide me a rental?
- Will my insurance cover a rental vehicle if I was not at fault?
- If the at-fault insurance won’t provide me a wreck and I don’t have rental coverage, what can I do?
- How long can I keep the rental car?
- What kind of rental car can I get?
- Do I get a rental if I wasn’t the owner of the car I was driving?
- What if I need financial help getting rental car?

Being in a car accident can affect your daily life for months after the accident.
For example, if the wreck destroys your vehicle you will likely need a rental vehicle until you acquire a new vehicle. At Hutchison & Stoy we are happy to answer any questions that our clients or potential clients have.
We have been assisting car accident victims with their personal injury cases in DFW for a number of years. One of the common questions that our clients ask us relates to rental vehicles.
Clients often come to us seeking information about how to file a claim with the at fault party’s insurance company. If the other parties insurance company claims responsibility for the accident the only thing you need to do is contact the insurance company and begin the claim process.
However, the process is not as simple if the other party’s insurance company does not claim responsibility for the car wreck.
If the at fault party’s insurance company for the refuses to accept liability you have to prove that the other party was in fact responsible for the accident.
One thing that you can do is send the insurance company a police report. If the police report is incorrect you can go to the police department that created the report and work with the department to correct the report. After the report has been corrected you can send it to the insurance company.
If all else fails you can pay for the cost of the rental vehicle out of your own pocket and then file a lawsuit in order to recover the expense that you paid.
The lawyers at Hutchison & Stoy can assist you when you are dealing with the insurance company. The fact is that many insurance companies do not have the injured individual’s best interest in mind when they are assessing whether they should pay a claim.
