Who Is Liable In Test-Drive Accidents?

If you are a driver and have driven someone’s car you probably thought what would happen if I got into an accident. Accidents can happen unexpectedly, and many incidents you won’t be able to react and avoid the collision. Here is some information that you may find useful before you get into the seat of a potentially new vehicle.

Dealership Coverage

If you are looking to buy a new car from a dealership, the dealer will usually have an insurance policy for all vehicles on the lot. If an accident happens that is not your fault, the dealerships insurance will cover the damage.

If the car accident is your fault, the dealer will attempt to hold you accountable. If this happens, your insurance company can cover the damage or prove that the accident was not your fault. Many dealerships treat test drive accidents like rental car accidents.

Also if there is an accident due to a faulty vehicle, the dealership will have their insurance cover vehicle damages and compensation for any injuries.
