My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advice but a guide to assist you.
If your friend is the one that is at fault he is liable.
He can say what he wants in court it does not change he is at fault.
The issue here is you allowed him to drive and you can be sued but you have to join him if you are sued.
You were not the driver he was and he is at fault. I assume the police were called and they have also charged him with negligent driving.
You cannot be held liable for the damage because you did not have insurance. He was the driver and he was at fault.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
