When you file a claim with your insurance company, the insurance adjuster will determine fault and work with the other parties insurance company to resolve the claim. Usually, the at-fault party would be responsible for the rental coverage. However, if your company pays for the claim (rather than the FedEx driver's commercial policy) and you do not have rental car coverage, you will not be provided with a rental car. If you feel that you are truly not at-fault in the accident, you can always seek legal advice. Here is more information on what to expect when filing a claim. Good luck and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
