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.

Can my band be sued?

That depends on what your band has done. If you've done a cover of a song, you can't be sued aslong as you credit it to the original artists. If you've called your band the same name as someone else's band then you could be sued if they find out. If you've hit someone over the head with a can of dry ice, then you can also be sued, or even prosecuted.
