What should I do if I am in car accident in a rental car in Florida?


The process is very much like that for any automobile accident with one important exception.

Due to the legislative influence of the automobile leasing industry, legislation has been passed which grants tort immunity to automobile lessors for accidents which are the fault of their lessees or renters, however, this immunity does not apply if it can be shown that the rental car company was itself guilty of negligence. Otherwise, an injured party will have to look to bodily injury insurance coverages available via the at fault driver’s rental agreement, or personal automobile policy or the Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist provisions of their own policy.
