Not At Fault Accident Rental Car

When you’re in an accident, and it’s not your fault, it’s hard to overcome the various obstacles that you man now face. For example, because someone else caused an accident, you’re now inconvenienced by not having a car to drive. It hardly seems fair, and that’s why you need to look at a not at fault accident rental car.

There could be all sorts of problems with your car, meaning that the car could be in the repair shop for longer than you even expected. Friends and family might be offering you a ride to where you want to go, but you lose your freedom. Part of the benefit of having your car is that you can go where you want when you want. Right now, that’s been taken away from you.

A not at fault accident rental car would allow you to get a rental car without incurring the direct cost. The only cost you would be responsible for is putting petrol in it from time to time.

Why should you have to pay for the cost of a rental car when it wasn’t even your fault that the accident occurred? The reality is that you don’t have to pay.

If you look at your car insurance policy, they might not offer you a courtesy vehicle. Many policies don’t provide this unless you pay extra. You probably figured that you were a safe driver and therefore didn’t need to have it. You never thought that another driver would be responsible for crashing into you, leaving you without a car. The truth is that this policy addition normally only comes in handy when you are at fault in an accident because if you were not at fault we should be able to help you out in most instances.

It won’t matter how long it takes for your car to get repaired. In fact, you won’t stress about it at all. This is because the other person’s insurance company will pay for the rental car for as long as it takes for you to get your vehicle back. This means that if the repair shop calls and says that they need to order a part and it’s going to take a few extra days, it’s not going to be a major inconvenience for you. While you love your car, it’s not going to be the end of the world because at least you have a vehicle to drive – and it will be a good car.

The rental car company will make it easy for you, too. This includes having the replacement car delivered right to the repair shop so that you don’t have to go without a vehicle. All of the out-of-pocket costs are handled between the insurance company and the rental car company. This saves you a lot of money and headaches because there’s no reason for you to be inconvenienced financially also.

Insurance companies don’t always tell you what you need to know. They are trying to save as much money as possible which is their job. However, when you are not at fault for an accident, you shouldn’t be the one who is inconvenienced without a vehicle.

You have to take action and get yourself a no-fault car replacement for as long as your car is in the repair shop. You shouldn’t have to pay a penny from your pocket, but ensure you get back your freedom.

You’re Not At Fault But NOT INSURED

If you happen not to be comprehensively insured or not insured at all and the other party in the accident was at fault then you can still fix your vehicle without any issues provided the other party is insured.

You’d simply need to find out who the person at faults vehicle is insured with and contact that insurer to advise them that their client has hit your vehicle. In the event that the other party isn’t insured things will then become a little trickier and you may need to engage the services of a Lawyer.

EXTENT OF DAMAGE

We like to inform our clients that just because the extent of damage visually caused may seem quite minimal or not evident in some cases please do not ignore getting your car repaired or looked at by a licenced Smash Repair workshop.

Vehicles these days contain plastic bumper bars and when they absorb an impact they sometimes pop back out giving the initial visual effect that there is no damage except for a few light scratches.

In reality you may be surprised to know that there are plastic brackets, clips, bar absorbers etc which could be damaged underneath the bumper bar and could possibly even compromise the safety of the vehicle. Please be sure to have professionals to investigate further.

We operate under Australian law

If you find yourself saying it wasn’t my fault after an accident you were involved in then under Australian Law you are entitled to a free replacement car. Insurance companies don’t readily advertise this given the fact that they will be the ones paying for the costs incurred.
