Tamarac Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney
Who pays for the damage to my vehicle?
The party who caused your accident, usually another driver, may be held responsible for the damage to your vehicle. If your own car insurance policy includes collision coverage you have the option of seeking compensation for the damage to your vehicle from your insurance company.
If you file a claim with your own insurance company, you do not have to prove fault in the accident. Your insurance company has the right to seek reimbursement from the responsible party. The compensation you can receive will be limited to the terms of your policy.
If you seek compensation from the responsible party you will have to prove fault. You may be entitled to greater compensation from the responsible party than from your own insurance because you have the right to seek full compensation for the losses and expenses arising out of your accident, rather than being limited to the terms of your policy.
After reviewing the terms of your policy and the facts in your case a Tamarac motor vehicle accident attorney can advise you as to the bet course of action.
I cannot afford to be without a vehicle while I wait for mine to be repaired. Who pays for my rental vehicle?
The party who was responsible for the accident can be held responsible for the cost of the rental vehicle along with your other damages. If you have purchased rental coverage from your insurance company then your insurance company will pay for the rental and you will not have to prove fault.
What happens if my vehicle is deemed a total loss?
If your vehicle cannot be repaired or if it will cost more to repair it than it would to replace it with a comparable vehicle, is it considered a total loss and you are entitled to fair market value for your vehicle and the tax, titled, and registration costs. Insurance adjusters often undervalue vehicles. The Tamarac accident attorneys of Fenster & Cohen, P.A. can help you get the true value of your vehicle.
