    I agree with Mr. Lundeen's response. In most jurisdictions, your own car insurance protects you when you are driving a rental vehicle. In the case you described it does not appear that you were at fault. If you were injured you have a right to make a claim against the driver and owner of the car that hit you.

    You haven't given much detail here, but in general damages fall into two categories: economic and non-economic. Economic damages are money damages. Amounts that you can show that you lost as a result of whatever it is for which you have sued your employer.

    I would most definitely seek the advice of a qualified personal injury attorneys. In some states municipal entities such as public schools have very tight timelines within which to file a claim. You should see an attorney as soon as possible.

    I'm going to give you the New York answer. South Carolina law may be different. The car insurance for the vehicle you were driving should cover you. However, that coverage will be limited to the amount that your parents purchased. If you are sued, that insurance policy should also provide you with defense counsel at no cost to you. It might be a good idea to contact your parent's insurance company to find out about coverage.

    An insurance adjuster is supposed to tell you the bodily injury limits of the person or corporation that casued your injury. In New York there have been many instances when insurance adjusters do not disclose all of the available coverages. Once a matter has been placed into suit, your attorney has a right to demand the coverage including copies of the insurance policies. That's the only way to confirm the full amount of coverage available.
