I loaned my car to a friend who was involved in a Florida car accident. Am I liable…
Yes in the state of Florida you are responsible for the actions of someone that you give permission to drive your vehicle. It is considered a dangerous instrumentality in the state of Florida so if you hand your keys to someone else and give them permission and they get into an accident, it is their fault, and they injure someone else, you could be responsible for part or even all of their damages. If they also have auto insurance, then that auto insurance carrier would also take partial responsibility for the crash itself and the injuries sustained, but you are absolutely responsible if you hand your keys to someone else and give them permission to drive your car.
