No you can not be liable for him using the address. It's just like when someone lives in an apartment complex if a tentant is involved in an accident the apartment complex is not at fault. His name is on the car title and on the policy. If he is the person driving then he would be the person responsible.

If someone drove your car and hit someone can you be sued?

Possibly. Being the owner of the vehicle, you assumed some of the responsibiliy when you loaned it to the other person. A lot of it depends on the circumstances surrounding the accident, though. Contact your insurance company and give them all the facts regarding the accident, and they can give you a more detailed answer. I would also advise you to get a copy of the accident report before you contact them, which you can get from the police precinct or sheriffs department that worked the accident. yes you can. anyone who drives your car is using your insurance unless you have insurance that covers any driver. Yes, as stated above, it is possible for you to be sued. But, it can still depend on the circumstances of the accident, the type of policy you have, and even whether or not that person had your permission to drive your car. Check your policy for any exclusions, as well as liability limitations.
