Chicago Personal Injury Attorney
Car Rental Negligence
Whether you are renting a small sedan for a family vacation or a large truck to help you move across country, the company you rent from is expected to maintain your vehicle and keep it safe. Unfortunately, many rental vehicles are not kept at a standard suitable for safe operation. The agency may be trying to cut corners to keep down prices. Or the agency owner may not understand what is expected of his or her automobiles. Whatever the reason for having an unsafe rental vehicle, it is unacceptable and negligent.
It is a rental agency’s responsibility to assure vehicles are roadworthy and safe. They are liable for any injury caused by known defects or issues that a regularly scheduled maintenance should have uncovered. Some large-scale agencies have been found to skip regularly scheduled maintenance check ups or ignore past renter’s complaints about a vehicle’s issues. If breaks, tires, airbag, engine or other components failed while a renter was driving a rental car, and it has lead to physical or property damage, you could be entitled to compensation. Whether you are a renter or an innocent bystander who was injured by the vehicle in question, the rental agency could be at fault. Please contact a Chicago personal injury lawyer to ensure you are rewarded with the proper compensation for your suffering.
