Good evening and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

Ordinarily, no, the rental company would not be liable. If rental companies were liable for accidents in their vehicles merely by virtue of the fact they are the owners, there would probably be no rental industry due to the cost of insurance. The liable parties are the driver and the trucking company, which should have more than enough insurance to cover any damages anyway.

I hope this answers your question.
