Who Is to Blame?
When you’ve been in an accident involving a rental truck, whether it be a U-Haul® vehicle or another brand of rental truck company, you can sue those companies for any negligence that may have led to your accident.
Rental truck company negligencecommonly falls within one of these categories:
- Knowingly renting out a damaged truck: When a rental truck company knowingly rents out a damaged vehicle, they can be held for any accidents that may be caused because of the accident.
- Renting the truck to an intoxicated driver: If the rental truck company knowingly rents a vehicle to an individual that is intoxicated at the time of the rental, they can and should be held liable to the fullest extent of the law.
- Renting to an individual without a license: To rent a truck, the person renting must have a state license that shows they are qualified to drive. When a rental truck company rents to a person who doesn’t have a license, this is a negligent act for which they can be sued.
- Renting to an individual who can’t safely drive the vehicle: When renting a truck, the rental truck company has to know whether the possible driver can or can not safely drive the vehicle. If the driver can’t safely operate the vehicle, then they shouldn’t rent the truck out. If they rent the truck anyway, and a wreck happens because of it, the rental truck company can be held liable for any wreck or damages that are caused.
