I loaned my car to a friend who was in a crash. Who is responsible?

Return to FAQ Videos

Transcript:

It is very common place for people to loan their cars to coworkers, to family members or to friends, but under Florida’s dangerous Instrumentality Act, the vehicle, if it’s involved in the crash, because you’re the owner, it means that you are ultimately responsible. Indeed, the person who you loaned the car to, if there is a lawsuit may also be named as the wrongdoer, but you as the owner of the car will be named.
