I loaned my car to a friend who was involved in a Florida car accident. Am I liable if my friend was at fault?
Unfortunately, the phrase ‘No good deed goes unpunished,’ applies here. When you loan your vehicle to a friend of yours, and that person causes an accident, you, as the owner of the vehicle, are responsible for the damages caused by your driver. Yes, you are responsible for damages and injuries caused by someone who you give consent to drive your vehicle.
