I am from PA. I was rear-ended in DC by the "cousin" of the owner of the vehicle. The owner of the vehicle claims the "cousin" didn't have his permission to use his vehicle. The owners insurance company is investigating this, but I am interested in what recourse I have to recoup the costs this unauthorized driver caused me. I had to pay almost $400 to have my car towed home, and almost $300 for a one-way car rental to get home. If I have to file an uninsured motorist claim, I'll likely also be out my $250 deductible.
Is the owner of the vehicle liable for a "stolen" car??
What can I do to recoup my costs?
At this time neither myself or my passenger have serious injuries, nor do I have full tort insurance. This is more of a property and loss question rather than a medical question.
Any ideas of what options I have?
