Assuming that the friend was driving the car at the time of the accident, both the owner and the driver in most cases can be held liable, and both could be sued. What actions can be taken to recover damages is pursuant to state laws. Often an insurance company will refuse to pay a claim under these circumstances. Contacting the insurance agent would be the best option.
Yes, he is liable if the person driving has a fatal accident. His insurance allows him to cover people that drive his car with his permission. If that person wrecks his car and dies, the insurance would pay the funeral expenses and give the actual cash value for the car minus the deductible.
YES. As owner of that vehicle you can be sued for things that happen in it. Most insurance companies cover people you loan your car to as "permissive users" but check with your company.

The owner of the car is responsible for the damages that car creates, regardless of who was driving. If there is a lawsuit, the insurance company is certainly going to enjoin the driver. And you need to read the insurance policy carefully to know whether they cover other drivers.
yes if they have a good story and lawyer
Maybe. If the primary owner doesn't have the money to cover the accident costs it is possible they could go after the co-signer.
ANY driver with permission to drive that car by the owner is covered under that car's insurance policy. Insurance goes with the car...not the driver.
Ask the person who is driving the car who the owner is.

Usually, it is the responsibility of the owner. However, if you have insurance on your vehicle, they will step in as secondary coverage...including covering the damage to the vehicle you were driving, if you have the coverage.

They suspended the drivers license and not the owner of the car who did not have the insurance. The owner never even recieved a ticket for no insurance.

You can only be sued if your name is on the title as well. Financial institutions require a co- signers name on the title. But if it slipped by and your not on the title, you can't be sued.
This is similar to the dilemma of a retard that decides to get strapped to the car and the guy driving crashes and the one strapped to the car is suing the driver. Ultimately though it is the judges decision. But I don't believe you can.
