Understanding Loss Of Use Claims

Have you been involved in an accident that was not your fault?

If so, you may be eligible to file a loss of use claim. A loss of use claim can help make sure that you are 100% made whole after being involved in an accident. This type of claim is essential for those who have had their vehicle completely totaled and are unable to get around due to the lack of a vehicle. In this blog post, we will discuss what “Loss Of Use” is, when is an acceptable time to file a loss of use claim, & how to file a loss of use claim.


Loss of use simply means the amount of money it takes you to live without the thing that has been taken away from you due to another person’s negligence. In this case, if your car has been totaled as a result of an accident caused by another person or company, then you may be entitled to seek compensation for expenses associated with being without your car, including but not limited to transportation costs such as ride-sharing services, taxis, bus tickets or rental cars. It also includes lost wages due to needing someone else's assistance or having less freedom due to not having access to your own car.


When Can You File A Loss Of Use Claim?

You can file a loss of use claim at any point during the litigation process after an accident occurs where your vehicle has been damaged, or damaged beyond repair and lost its time of use because of the other driver's negligence and/or fault. This means that if you have already filed an insurance claim for damages incurred in the accident and were denied coverage or did not receive enough money from the insurance company, then you may still be able to pursue a loss of use claim against the negligent party responsible for causing your damages. The Sheldrick Law Firm handles these types of cases regularly!
