What if a car I sold was never transferred out of my name and it was involved in an accident?
Question Details: Am I still liable?
Unfortunately, you are liable for the accident because you are the registered owner of the vehicle at fault in the accident.
Your liability includes the property damage (cost of repairs) to the vehicle not at fault in the accident and the personal injury claims of the occupants of that vehicle. The personal injury claims will include medical bills, pain and suffering (an amount in addition to the medical bills) and wage loss.
Try to find and provide evidence that you sold the car prior to the accident to both the DOT and the other party's insurance carrier.
As the current registerd owner, you are liable if the person driving the car was at -fault. You can be held responsible for all costs and pain and suffering caused by the accident, including but not imited to the damage to the other car and the personal injury expenses and related claims of any occupant of the other car.
