Re: loss of use
Loss of use is a legitimate claim for damages. Usually it is limited for one month, or until they make you an offer to settle for the property damages.
Re: loss of use
Loss of use is indeed a proper item of damages to claim in such a situation. Even if you did not rent a car, the reasonable value of car rental for that period can be the basis for a claim for what the value of your loss is. They will negotiate you downward from there, but sure, make the claim.
