What if I Get in an Accident While Driving a Friend's Vehicle?

What if I get in an accident while driving a friend's vehicle?

Although states vary on how insurance is handled, in most cases you insure a car not a person. So your insurance when you lend your car to a friend is going to follow that car. So in the same sense if you borrow a friend's car, their insurance is on the hook. But that only has to do, in most cases, with whose going to be the first insurance company that you got to. If the accident is bad enough that it would exhaust the insurance for the car then the driver's insurance would come into play as the secondary policy.

Where Zinda Law Group Practices:

We were founded in Texas and have a team of Austin personal injury lawyers as well as attorneys in Dallas and Fort Worth.

 As we’ve grown we expanded out west to El Paso, Texas subsequently into Arizona adding Tucson Personal Injury Lawyers to the firm, as well as adding offices in Colorado including Denver Personal Injury Lawyers and the surrounding cities such as Colorado Springs.

We also have a team of attorneys that have experience serious injury cases such as car accidents, wrongful death and truck accidents.   We also have experience handling more complex cases such as gas explosions and drug injury cases, such as the Taxotere® Lawsuits.
