Depends. If said friend has insurance then in most cases their insurance will cover the damages due to vicarious liability. If the friend does not have insurance, you are then responsible for any damages caused.

You hope that the other driver responsible in the crash has insurance that covers uninsured drivers and then you sue your friend!


Assuming your friend has insurance, they would file a claim against the other insurnace company. If your friend doesn't have insurance, you'll have to pursue your firend civillay to recover damages. Insurance follows the driver, not the car, so it doesn't matter which state the accident was in.


It depends, they could or they could have you sign an exclusion on that driver, which means that if that person ever drives the car again and gets into an accident the insurance company will not be responsible for damages.


Do you have car insurance? Yours will cover it. Your friend if he is a true friend, will cover the deductible.


I believe most insurances will cover the damages if the car is insured and you have a license, but if you do not have a license the insurance will not cover anything you are both liable. Your friend is liable for loning you the car without a license and you are liable for driving it.


First of all a friend does not borrow your car without your permission- if they used it without your permission they really arent your friend and they technically stole your car- Unauthorized use of a motor vehicle- Their insurance will cover them only if you file a complaint with the police stating that the person did not have your permission to use the car. Otherwise your insurance will cover the loss and your rate may jump or you may get cancelled. Your call- depends on how much the claim is and how good the friend is


If your friend was at fault- then your insurance policy will pay first. Always remember the insurance follows the vehicle, NOT the driver. If the costs of the accident exceed your policy limits, your friend's policy will respond next.


There is more than one answer to this question. Because you did not state who was at fault in the accident. If the other driver was at fault, it is that person or their insurance company that is responsible for the repairs on your car. If it is the friends fault, then it is the friend that is responsible. Even if the friend did or did not know you had did not have insurance.


Your friend is. If she is over 25 she is normally covered. Because you claim on youe insurance, technically it will be an at fault accident and your premium may go up. You should talk to your insurer.


It would be a very foolish move to put a friend on your car insurance because if they have an accident you will have to pay any expenses. This also includes letting a friend use your car.


My boyfriend was driving my car and had an accident. My insurance company paid the damages but his insurance premiums went up. Mine did not increase. The points follow the driver. It has been a few years but I am not sure if it has changed. Your insurance agent should be able to inform you. I didn't want to call them at the time but I did and was assured even though they paid for it, I was not penalized nor were my premiums increased.


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.


The people responsible for an automobile accident are those who are operating the involved vehicles at the time of the accident - unless the cause is mechanical failure or some other event outside the control or any of the operators. The person responsible for paying for the resulting damages may be the vehicle owners or the person who bought the vehicle insurance (usually, but not always, the same person). When operator negligence is involved, the operator may be responsible for paying the damages, even though the operator is not the insured person.


As long as she has the correct insurance that allows the car to lent to a friend then it should cover you.


It could, depending on the seriousness of the accident, payments made, past history, etc. Since insurance follows the car, yours would be primary since it's your car. Your carrier insures you and your risks. By allowing another person to drive your car, you have accepted the possible risk of that person having an accident. Your premiums might change accordingly.


You need to involve parents or a lawyer, as appropriate.


First of all, it depends who it is from. If it is from a rental company, i dont know. but if it is from a friend i think you are liable for the damages.


If they're not on the rental agreement, they shouldn't be driving it. If they get into an accident, you'll be liable for all damages and costs.


Provided that there are no exclusions in your friends policy, anybody driver their car with permission will be covered if they cause an accident. You are of course subject to the coverages and limits on your friends policy. Ex, if your friend has just liability, the insurance company will only pay for damages you cause to the other party, not damage to the vehicle you were driving.


If you let a friend borrow a car who had no insurance and you had no insurance, essentially two violations have been committed. He is responsible, but you are too. It is unlikely that a court would award you with damages.
