Borrowed Vehicle Accident

In Jacksonville, Florida and other cities, there are often automobile accidents involving a borrowed vehicle or a permissive driver. In other words, a driver, other than the owner of the vehicle, borrows the vehicle with the permission of the owner and is in an automobile accident. Most automobile accident insurance policies will provide insurance coverage if there is a crash involving a borrowed vehicle or permissive driver; however, at times, the insurance company will further investigate the claim or case and attempt to deny coverage or liability. Due to the complexities of automobile accident claims and cases, it is advisable to hire an experienced Florida Automobile Accident attorney to review the applicable insurance policies and set a course to protect and enforce the legal rights of the injury victim. For over 30 years, David Wolf has represented injury victims and their families in a wide array of personal injury cases including those related to automobile accidents and other accidents involving a truck, bicycle, motorcycle, or pedestrian.

Florida adopts the Dangerous Instrumentality Rule for Motor Vehicles . . .

It should be noted that the State of Florida deems the operation of a motor vehicle to be a dangerous instrumentality. As such, the owner of a motor vehicle is liable for the negligence of a permissive driver even if the owner of the motor vehicle was not in the motor vehicle at the time of the automobile accident. As such, if the registered owner of a motor vehicle gives permission to a driver to operate the motor vehicle, it should be done so with the understand that liability or fault attaches to both the driver and owner if there is an automobile accident caused by negligent, careless, or reckless driving.

In the aftermath of an automobile accident, there are a host of issues and questions that arise including but not limited to those related to medical bills, medical treatment, automobile insurance, vehicle repairs, total loss of the vehicle, diminished value of the vehicle, choice and selection of medical doctors, compensation, wage loss, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and mental anguish. The legal and insurance system can be quite complicated. Insurance companies are well protected and represented by attorneys. As such, the injury victim should level the playing field by hiring an experienced Florida Automobile Accident Attorney for advice, guidance, and legal representation.
