Asked by user in Idaho.
My son borrowed my truck and was in an accident. He was at fault. Will my insurance cover the damages?
Generally speaking, car insurance “follows the car.” In other words, your car insurance will cover any damage to your vehicle so long as the person driving your vehicle had your permission to drive the vehicle.
There are a few exceptions to this general rule. Most notably, an insurance company can explicitly exclude certain people from coverage (such as a specific member of your family or a driver who doesn’t have a valid license). Any exclusions would need to be stated in the policy.
Therefore, to be sure your son isn’t excluded from coverage, you’ll need to look at your auto insurance policy. You can request a full copy of your policy from your insurer.
