- Who may be Held Liable in a Test Drive Accident?
Have you ever thought of what would happen if you got into a crash with a car that is not your own? Even if you are a safe driver, accidents happen unexpectedly. Here is some information you may find helpful before you get in the drivers seat of a potentially new vehicle.
If you test drive a used or new vehicle from a dealership, the dealer usually has an insurance policy for all of the vehicles on the lot. This means that, even if you are off the lot when the accident happens, the vehicle is usually covered. Test drive accidents are rare and often the dealership will use its own insurance to cover the cost of any repairs.
But, there is a catch. If the accident is your fault, the dealer may attempt to hold you accountable. In this situation, your insurance company can cover the damage or you can prove that the accident was not your fault. Most dealerships treat test drive accidents like accidents with rental cars.
However, if the accident was the other drivers fault, their insurance is responsible for damages and injuries. Also, if you test drive a faulty vehicle, the dealership should have their insurance cover vehicle damages and provide compensation for any injuries.
If you have been in a test drive accident and are injured, speak to an experienced personal injury attorney at Phillips Law Group.

Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.

I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
