Question

Country: United States of America
State: Minnesota

I am currently a college student and I had someone drive me to a study session that I had, and the conditions outside were really bad. My friend who drove my car slid into a parked car and caused damage to both mine and the other persons vehicle...under this situation who is liable? me, the owner of the car or the driver? and is there anything I can do since I wasn't the driver of the vehicle when this incident happened?

Answer

Your insurer and the driver's insurer will work out how each is paying; if the driver had no insurance then your company will normally have to pay...
