Corona, CA asked in Car Accidents for California

Q: I was in a car accident a month ago, the other driver was at fault. We both are insured through the same company,

My insurance covered my car rental, but the fees out of pocket were $185. And my car payment was $400 and yet I was without my car for almost the whole month, am I entitled to be reimbursed this money from the other driver or the insurance company?

A: more info would be helpful.

you are entitled to any out of pocket loss.

they will argue about the car payment... but you will counter that you had a right to have a car rental for the period of time and any other out of pocket loss.

i suspect they would even pay you $500-$1,000 on top of that to get a full release that protects them from any stiffness, soreness you encountered.
