I was driving my friend’s car and was hit by someone else. Do I still have a claim?

November 2nd, 2022

If you weren’t at fault and you and your friend have car insurance then yes, you still have a claim.

Driving someone else’s car does not change that you were the victim and need to be compensated for your injuries. The at-fault driver needs to reimburse you for the damages they caused you. This normally happens through the at-fault driver’s car insurance.
In all car accidents, we recommend you do the following:

1. Call the local police department and report the accident.
2. Seek medical attention.
3. Take pictures and document everything.
4. Call Earl and Edwards, PLLC

Understandably, this is the question that gets contemplated most during our consultations.

Could you do it yourself? Yes. Should you do it yourself? Probably not.
There is more to a car accident claim than submitting your claim and accepting whatever insurance decides to pay you. All insurances wish people would represent themselves because it allows them to pay you as little as possible.
