This depends on what state you reside and also what state the incident occured in. IF you carried the property as a friend and not as a hired mover AND the damage was committed by no fault of your own, in most states this is considered to be an accident. The friend may not win a lawsuit against you in this case.IF you were paid or hired to move the equipment in any way then you are most likely at fault and will be held responsible.I am gonna add that it depends to what degree you were negligent. If you did not get paid for doing this, the threshold of negligence is somewhat higher than if you got paid. If they were worth a lot, sounds like a lawsuit and some room for argument...

Depends on the situation. If the transportation was done at the request of your friend, and the "service" was done for the sole benefit of your friend, then you could be considered an agent for your friend. If so, then his insurance should cover at least part of the cost of his damaged equipment.

Also a point to note, is how the equipment came to be damaged. If you dropped it while loading it into a vehicle is completely different from if someone crashed into the back of your equipment-loaded vehicle at a stoplight, causing the damage.

I would think that if you're a transporter/mover professionally and/or own/work for a company that provides such services, would be pertinant. If you were paid a fee over costs, would factor in as well.

If you were simply doing a friend a favor, for free, and were involved in an accident with another vehicle, the negligent parties insurance carrier would cover damages to property (if you were At Fault, your ins. carrier should pay-friend would need to receipts etc. proving cost and age of equipment). If that's not the case, surely your friend has his "professional" equipment insured and they would pay.

Use a Referral?

If you have decided to make use of professional tax preparation services, then try to get a referral from your friends or family members. It is important to get a referral for tax preparation services to protect yourself.

The truth is that these professionals truly have little to no accountability in the process. The person who is responsible for any information filed is the taxpayer.
