You bet. And it works both ways. If you're borrowing someone's car, find out if they have insurance on the car. I just read a lawsuit against a man who borrowed a car, got into an accident that was mostly not his fault, and only found out after the accident that the car insurance had not been renewed 3 months earlier. As one of the drivers, he was found 20% responsible for the accident and ended up with a $30,000+ judgment against him.
