My question involves a traffic accident in the State of: South Carolina.
I was in an accident where the other driver was at fault. Her insurance has accepted liability. Our minivan is being fixed but while it's in the shop, we have a rental car. We have insurance so if anything happens in the rental car, we are covered BUT they say that if something happens to the rental car, while it's in the shop we have to pay a Loss of Use fee of $85/day (that's how much a minivan rental is) since they are unable to rent out the car while it's being fixed. So, they offer an insurance plan for $16.99/day that if anything happens, we will not have to pay the loss of use fee.
If something happened, I would obviously rather pay $16.99 than $85 BUT I feel i should NOT have to pay this. I did not cause the accident. I would NOT even have rented a car if it weren't for this other driver. Is there a way that I can get her insurance to pay for it? We will have the rental for about 15 days which adds up to $254! That's a lot of money for something I didn't do!
