Carefull, this is a complicated question. Many times there is no value in suing.

You may have to sue if:

1st The At Fault driver is not insured or not properly insured.

2nd The at fault insurance company will not pay or will not pay fair compensation.

3rd If you are injured and need a Lawyer to protect your rights and insure proper and fair compensation.

Many times the Insurance companies will not pay fairly and it is often easier to get your Insurance company to intervene than to hire a lawyer. I specificaly buy insurance that provides this coverage as I was bitten before in this way.

Good Luck

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.
