We made each claimant aware of that early in the process including Ms. Casey, and that we would need to do our due diligence and complete an investigation to determine if the renter had personal auto insurance to cover the damage first. If they did not, by contract in Arizona and in most other states Hertz takes a Secondary Liability position as the owner of the vehicle.What that means is the renter is primarily responsible for his/her own negligence.However, if the renter does not have liability insurance that meets the minimum financial responsibility limits of the state where the accident occurs to respond to an accident in which the renter is deemed to be negligent, then Hertz will step up to pay up to the amount of the minimum financial responsibility limits of the applicable state.In Arizona, the minimum financial responsibility limits for property damage to third parties is $10,000 per occurrence. After many unsuccessful attempts to establish personal auto insurance for the renter, we moved forward in the claims process and sent adjusters to complete the estimates for each claimant. Per state law we meet the statutory requirements for property damage of $10,000, which in this case, needed to be pro-rated among all claimants based on the extent of damage that each claimants vehicle received. Estimates for all four claimants would need to be complete About Loss Adjusters before issuing a final settlement. The estimates were completed and the final settlements were available on 4/18.
