If another driver caused your accident, the other driver’s liability insurance should pay for the cost of repairing your vehicle. If the insurance company determines that your car is a “total loss,” or “totaled,” then the insurer should pay you the full market value for the car.
Additionally, while your car is being repaired or while you are waiting to get a check for the total loss, the other driver’s insurance company should pay for your rental car. If you do not get a rental because you have another car available to you, then you should get money for “loss of use” of the car that was involved in the crash.
