These days almost every household has at least two cars sitting in the driveway. This means that there are more cars on the road. This presents a higher risk of accidents occurring. A collision can certainly shake someone up but a nasty crash can be devastating. The injured party will have to cope with physical injuries, a damaged vehicle and a severe loss in income whilst recuperating. When such an accident takes place in a hired vehicle some people have very little idea what to do.

Yes, they will have to be informed but there is no need to answer any questions related to the accident. The only information the company needs to know is the extent of the damage to their vehicle and where it is parked.
