In 2009, while I was pregnant with my son, I had an accident with a car that I rented from "Enterprise Rent a Car" I paid for full insurance coverage for the car (required), I was the only one involved in the accident because the Right front wheel of the car suddenly busted/blew up while I was driving.
My 2 year old daughter was in the car at the time but was not hurt. I was very hurt because my seven month pregnant Tommy hit the steering and I started having some contractions at the scene. Some good Samaritans stopped and called 911 and I was rushed to the hospital.
I stayed at the hospital for about 5-6 hours before I was discharged and was asked to get regular checkups. The DSHS health insurance I had at the time covered all my medical and Ambulance bills. I did not file any claim because I was embarrassed by having an accident with a car that did not belong to me.
My question is,IS IT TOO LATE TO FILE NOW? and CAN I CLAIM ANY DAMAGES?.
It’s not too late, but YOU ARE STRONGLY encourage to talk to a Washington lawyer before you file the claim. There may be recovery available to you against Enterprise, so you do need legal advice. Your 2 year daughter may also have recovery against your policy and/or Enterprise.
