A: You would want to be sure that you have a denial of coverage, and the reasons. Then contact attorneys who handle "bad faith " claims. A lot depends on who you rented from, was that in Canada etc. I wouldn't give up as Rental Companies often collect from their own insurance and bill you, getting double! If the crash was in NJ, contact a member of the NJ Assn for Justice in the county where it happened.
