I think he has a decent shot at not paying the DV as the vehicle was sold, so the rental company must now show that they got less money as a direct result of the accident. They were basing the earlier demand from a formula based on the repairs and severity.

The first thing is to deal with the DV issue and attempt to get them to reduce it if you can, just in case you are unable to collect it from the other driver. Once that is settle, you can pursue collecting this amount from the at-fault driver.
Agreed. I sent an email to National Customer service on Monday and haven’t got response yet. Will update this thread once I have.
