it sucks, but IMHO, you have no grounds for a lawsuit to recover your lease payments. you had payments before the accident, that continues.

you can try arguing with your insurance company to put you into a better car, which they'll subrogate over to the other ins company, but thats pretty much the limit of what you can do
I agree 100%. Sure the rental isn't a BMW but it is reliable transportation. Worrying about stuff like this is hard on ones psyche and not worth it.
