The Unique Features of Rental Car Accidents
Rental car accidents can be more complicated than a standard car accident case due to the number of parties and insurance policies that may be involved.
For one, the driver who is using the rental car may be covered under a variety of insurance policies, such as:
- Insurance offered by the rental car company
- Optional supplemental coverage
- Rental car insurance provided by a credit card company
- Personal car insurance policies that extend to rental car use
On top of this, there could be a number of liable parties for a rental car accident. These may include:
- Another driver
- The car rental company
- The car dealer or manufacturer
- A mechanic
- A municipality
- And more

What to Do After a Rental Car Accident
After a car accident occurs while you or the other party were driving a rental car, here are some proactive steps you may be able to take to strengthen your case.
Seek Medical Attention
Seeking medical care after a car accident can be vital for a wide range of injuries that may occur. Even if you feel okay, doctors can help ensure that your injuries are identified and treated. Seeing a doctor soon after your accident can also create a link in your medical record between the accident and your injuries that may be used as evidence in your case.
Make sure to keep and preserve any evidence of the accident you have or obtain from witnesses. This can include photos or videos of:
- Damaged cars
- Weather conditions
- Skid marks
- Cars’ number plates
- Bodily injuries
You should also retain witness contact information and any receipts, invoices, or paperwork you receive connected to your expenses, such as car repair estimates and medical bills.
Be Careful When Speaking With Insurance Companies
Insurers may call you immediately after they learn about an accident. Remember that the insurers may use statements you give them to reduce your settlement and that you are not obligated to discuss your accident or your injuries with them until you are prepared to do so.
If you work with Bader Scott Injury Lawyers on your case, we can handle all communication and negotiations with the insurance companies on your behalf.

Per O.C.G.A. § 51-4-2, Georgia law also allows certain surviving family members of those who lose their life in a car accident to pursue compensation in a wrongful death case. This may include damages such as funeral and burial costs, pre-death medical care, loss of income, and more.
Whether Bader Scott Injury Lawyers is handling your personal injury or wrongful death case, we can collect evidence of your damages and their value for settlement negotiations or to present on trial.
The Statute of Limitations in Georgia
There is a legal deadline for suing for car accident injuries in Georgia. O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33 gives victims a general two-year statute of limitations for filing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. If you do not take legal action before this deadline expires, your case may be dismissed, and you may be unable to recover compensation for your damages via a lawsuit.
