If you have been seriously injured in a rental car accident as the result of another’s fault, you may be entitled to substantial financial 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 LLP 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
If you rent a car and it crashes because the brakes or other equipment were defective, you may be within your rights to seek compensation from the rental car company for neglected vehicle maintenance.
