It depends what you are suing for. If you are talking about damage to the vehicle, it would be handled under the applicable insurance coverage. So if you rented under your own policy coverage, the collision would pay for the damage and if your insurance company feels Hertz was at fault, it can pursue them in "subrogation." If you were hurt and want to claim medical expense, lost income and/or pain and suffering, the best option is to consult a Colorado personal injury attorney.
As a Colorado attorney who dealt with that snowstorm, I guess I have to know -- was someone hurt?
If so, I understand your need for counsel. If not, I am trying to figure out why counsel would be important. Please fill me in and perhaps I can help.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
