Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a qualified lawyer happy to help you today.
The only thing you can do is to repeat that you were not the driver and that they need to pursue your friend for the damage. If they decide to sue you, you will be able to defend the claim (and issue a counter claim against your friend). If they do sue then the court will send you a copy of the claim form and a response pack (I attach the response pack so you know what it looks like). It is important you complete and return the response pack as soon as the court sends it to you - if you do not then the claimant/petrol station owner can request default judgment (a CCJ) against you as you would not have replied or defended the claim.
The other thing to consider is contacting your friend's insurers (if they were insured to drive your car). You can find out who their insurer was at the time of the accident here: https://ownvehicle.askmid.com/
