Boston, MA asked in Car Accidents for Arizona

Q: I was invloved in a no fault accident in Tempe, Arizona - the insured was cited at the scene and did not contest

Early on in the claim the insured insurance carrier stated that they would reimburse reasonable rental if their insured was at fault. The out of pocket expenses were $4300 and they are offering to pay $1800. Do I have any recourse?

A: An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It could be difficult for an attorney to advise here. It looks like the other side conceded liability, so that simplifies the equation. It could depend on the nature of the out-of-pocket expenses and how they were determined. If you were presented with a denial, it might outline your options (filing suit or arbitration request) on the reverse side. This is only a generality that usually applies nationwide. For more specific guidance on recourses available under Arizona auto insurance law, it could be worth considering a brief consult with a local attorney if you are not able to come to a fair resolution of the damages. Good luck
