  Rental Car Accident Injury Attorney

Every year, tourists from all over the country are drawn to Colorado's borders for its beauty and outdoor adventures. The beautiful Rocky Mountains boast some of the best skiing in the nation and make Colorado one of the best tourist destinations in the United States. Due to the number of out of town visitors, rental cars are in hot demand because of their convenience. Unfortunately, accidents do occur and when you are involved in a rental car accident, the results can be disastrous.

Hazardous winter conditions can make driving icy roads tricky even for Colorado residents, but for out of town visitors, they can be down right treacherous. An accident during vacation fun can quickly spoil anyone's travel plans and can leave all everyone feeling helpless and alone. If you are involved in a
rental car accident, there are many things you need to be aware of.

In general, the rental car company is held liable for any accidents that occur with their rental cars. Even if the driver was not listed on the rental agreement, the rental company may still be liable for damages. Unfortunately, the rental car company may also be limited in their liability by state statutes.

If you or a loved one was involved in a rental car accident in Colorado, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney immediately. Your attorney will be able to determine who is at fault for the accident by investigating the accident thoroughly. After an accident, there may be several parties responsible, including:

  • The other driver
  • The county or city (for roadway maintenance etc)
  • The rental car company
  • The car manufacturer or distributor
  • You

Rental cars are not always maintained or inspected properly, leading to unstable handling in emergency situations. In addition, rental car companies may not be up to date on all recalled automobile parts and tires that may make their rental cars more accident prone. Even if your vehicle was properly maintained, there may be other factors that contributed to your accident and your personal injury attorney will need to investigate all aspects of the accident to determine the best course of action.

 Even if you are to blame for the accident, your attorney will be able to work with your insurance company and the rental car company to protect your interests and ensure that all bills are handled quickly and efficiently.
