Am I responsible for the damages or injuries caused by someone else driving my car?

If you allow someone else to drive your car and they are involved in a car accident, you may be held liable for the damages or injuries caused by that person.

You could be held responsible if the person you let drive your car is unfit to drive and you knew, or should have known, that they were incapable of safely driving the car. This may include allowing someone to drive your car that is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
