Depends. If said friend has insurance then in most cases their insurance will cover the damages due to vicarious liability. If the friend does not have insurance, you are then responsible for any damages caused.

Your Friend Will get multiple traffic tickets for driving without insurance and without a drivers license. If your friend has an at fault accident.

They can sue your friend because he was the driver and they can sue you because you are the owner of the vehicle who allowed him to drive your vehicle. .

Assuming your friend has insurance, they would file a claim against the other insurnace company. If your friend doesn't have insurance, you'll have to pursue your firend civillay to recover damages. Insurance follows the driver, not the car, so it doesn't matter which state the accident was in.

Yours


What would happen if a friend lets you borrow his insured car and you get into an accident but you do not own a car or have insurance?

I believe most insurances will cover the damages if the car is insured and you have a license, but if you do not have a license the insurance will not cover anything you are both liable. Your friend is liable for loning you the car without a license and you are liable for driving it.
