Woodland Hills, CA asked in Insurance Bad Faith for California

Q: I was injured in a mototrcycle accident, other driver at fault. The medical was covered. The repair took 4+ months

They will pay me $30.00 a day for loss of use. For over 2-1/2 months, I could not use a rental due to injuries. I did not rent @ $165.00 a day (Harley Davidson) for the balance time until the repairs were completed. Is the insurance company obliged to pay me $30.00 a day, or $165.00 a day.

A: Typically the availability of a rental vehicle is a function of the insurance policy, which here sounds like a $30 per day provision. You're probably limited to $30 per day, but its' worth asking to read the policy.
