My car, which is financed, was badly damaged due to wet road conditions and is not operable. Because I declined the rental option in my original policy, insurance will not cover a rental car. Still waiting to hear from the insurance claim department. Meantime, I don't have transportation. What... Read more »
rental isn't something they have to reopen. You can ask your agent but otherwise you will need to get yourself either a rental or pay a friend to use their car and see if there's a way you can insure it or get a hail damage special.

We were t-boned at a 4-way stop in PA. We came to a stop, then proceeded. Other driver ran the stop sign and hit the passenger side of our car, which has been totaled. We don't have collision on it (older vehicle). No injuries on either side.

You would need to consult with a lawyer to answer this question. A lawyer would presumably want to review your plan and any correspondence. An office conference would be necessary so that you could discuss with the lawyer all things that transpired and any conversations that you had with the...Read more »
Clearly the driver is responsible. The matter would have to be reviewed by a lawyer to determine if there is a case against the owner for what is called "negligent entrustment," and/or, if the driver was drinking at an establishment which held a liquor license, if there is a case against...Read more »
