If you have been seriously injured in a rental car accident, you may be entitled to recover compensation. Rental car accidents can be challenging however. While some states allow you to take legal action against rental car companies after a collision, New York State generally prohibits these sorts of lawsuits. Even so, there are a few exceptions.
If you retain a Staten Island rental car accident lawyer at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates, they can help identify the individuals who should be held responsible for your pain and suffering and other damages.

Who Is Liable in Rental Car Accident Cases
