In Massachusetts, victims of accidents involving rental vehicles can suffer serious injuries, can incur significant medical expenses and can lose substantial income resulting from those injuries. Any time you have been the victim of an accident involving a rented vehicle, you should consult with an experienced attorney who can help assist you in recovering fair compensation under the circumstances.
In keeping with M.G.L. c. 90 ? 32E, all entities renting automobiles registered in the Commonwealth must have compulsory insurance coverage including Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits. This means that even if you elect not to purchase additional bodily injury coverage, you and your passenger’s are entitled to PIP benefits through the rental provider. In addition to helping access these benefits, an experienced personal injury lawyer should know where to look for coverage to compensate injured victims fully for their damages.
Even if the at fault driver does not have adequate insurance to cover your injuries, a competent personal injury attorney will know where to look for additional coverage and/or compensation for your serious injuries.
Moreover, if you are in need of a rental vehicle due to an automobile accident, you may be able to pay for the vehicle from your own coverage or from that of any at-fault party. In addition to investigating coverage for your bodily injury claim, an experienced attorney will also help to coordinate reimbursement for your rental vehicle should you require one.
