“Loss of use” is essentially the legal phrase that is used to describe the damages that a plaintiff seeks for their inability to use the vehicle that was damaged caused by an auto accident in Albuquerque.
If You're In a Car Accident, You're Entitled to "Loss of Use" for Your Vehicle from the At-Fault Driver
Our office recently resolved a loss of use claim on behalf of a client. Loss of use claims are akin to rental car claims. When your vehicle is damaged and not driveable as the result of a motor vehicle collision, the at-fault driver must provide you with a rental car or compensate you monetarily for the time you lost the use of your vehicle.
In our recent case, a driver for the State of New Mexico caused a motor vehicle collision resulting in the total loss of our client’s vehicle. At first, the state denied our client’s loss of use claim. After Keller & Keller intervened, the state revised its position and paid our client for ten days' loss of use.Start a Live Chat
