Louisville, KY asked in Car Accidents, Insurance Bad Faith and Small Claims for Kentucky

Q: Can I take a rental agency to small claims court?

I was in a wreck. Not my fault. Other parties insurance paid for my rental car. The rental company charged my credit card a fee for comprehensive insurance. I was told by other insurance that they would pay for it, n than they refused to pay for it. I have the recorded phone conversation from the insurance saying that the agent said they would cover the fee for me. I have disputed this with my credit company, but they said it was for services rendered they can't dispute it. My question is can I take the rental agency to small claims court to get reimbursed the charge and have them get the payment from the other parties insurance?

A: If it's not your fault and you were hurt, you have an injury case and may get medical benefits off of the insurance, so I'd check that out first before you sue the insurance.Talk to a member of the Kentucky Justice Association. They give free consultations.
