My truck was stolen and reported and the guy caught and arrested after crashing my truck.
As I read ARS-28-3512C I'm not responsible for the tow, storage charges, etc. The driver is responsible. Additionally, they can't refuse to release my truck for non payment by the responsible... View More

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?
An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It could be difficult for an attorney to advise here.

Wow this is a great question and one I have not thought about before. I would ask the at fault driver's carrier to cover the cost of replacement under the property damage portion of their claim. Remember that they should cover all property lost or damaged as a result of the accident. If there...View More

Did this happen in Arizona? I am only licensed in Arizona so I cannot comment on other jurisdictions, but if this was an AZ collision and the other party was at fault a lot of times medical providers will treat with a lien so you do not have to pay out-of-pocket. In addition to the medicals, you...View More
