A: If you have insurance, your coverage may pay for a rental car. You may ultimately be able to claim rental car expenses as damages in a claim made against the other side. Consult counsel in your area.

A: First, contact a member of the Idaho Assn for Justice like Mr. Mahoney--they give free consults.You--or they if you decide their representation is appropriate--can ask for a "direct billing." Otherwise, you rent and they reimburse (unless you have car rental on your policy). You only get reimbursed at a base rate unless you can show a need for a different vehicle, which happens rarely (I represented a champion bass fisherman who needed a certain capacity truck--that kind of rarely).

Good luck!
