Am I Liable if Someone Else Crashed My Car?
If you let a friend use your vehicle in Florida and it was involved in an accident, you may be wondering, “Am I liable if someone else crashed my car?”
Am I liable if I loaned my car to someone else and it was involved in an accident?
As the owner of a motor vehicle in Florida, due to Florida’s dangerous instrumentality doctrine, you are 100% liable if your friend goes out and crashes into somebody. If the use was not permissive, you might be looking at a different situation. If you gave permission for the person to use the vehicle, however, then you as the owner will be 100% liable for any injuries that result from the accident.
Did you loan your car to someone else who crashed it and want to know if you are liable for the accident?
