Question

If someone hits my uninsured vehicle, will their insurance pay for a rental car?

A neighbor hit my uninsured car while it was parked outside of my house. My car has been off the road for repairs and I was about to take it for a smog inspection to get it back on the road. Will my neighbor's insurance policy pay for a rental vehicle while my car is getting fixed?

Liability coverage pays for damage caused to another vehicle and usually a rental to cover that other driver's loss of use of their vehicle. I would recommend contacting your neighbor's insurance provider to confirm the details of coverage since the claims process can vary by company. Best of luck!
