Sorry to hear about the accident. Since you let your friend borrow your vehicle and he got into an accident, your insurance policy will cover the damages. Auto insurance typically follows the vehicle, not the driver, so the policy covering the vehicle will be the one to cover the expenses from an accident.
I let my friend borrow my car and he got into a minor accident. We both have car insurance. Whose insurance will cover the damages?Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Alexah on February 22, 2021
When a car is borrowed and the driver gets into an accident, whose insurance kicks in to cover damages? I'm kind of regretting loaning my car to my friend now.
