Can I be held liable for an accident that I was not involved in?

Question Details: I lent my car to someone and they were involved in an accident caused by medication interactions. I had insurance on the car until the midnight right before the morning of the accident, I thought I had 2 weeks more before it expired. I was found not liable in a civil court case but the driver and I were sued by an insurance company without knowing about it. The driver involved in the accident declared bankruptcy and now they are coming after me now. Can this happen?
