Schmidt Kramer partner Scott Cooper was recently interviewed by abc27 to discuss a new state law that applies to peer-to-peer car rental programs like Turo and Getaround. These programs allow you to rent your vehicle out to others.
According to Cooper, the law allows car insurance companies to exclude coverage for vehicles that are used in these programs. This is different from how other rental cars are handled, as personal policies cover you when you rent a car from Hertz or Budget.
If you use Turo or another peer-to-peer car rental service, you are going to need to get insurance. Otherwise, you would need to rely on the insurance provided by these programs. However, the coverage from these insurance policies may not be sufficient.
If you were injured in a rental car crash due to another’s negligence, we may be able to help you seek compensation for your damages.
