Q: Can I sue the host of a party if one of his guests hit my car parked in his driveway?
Based upon the information provided, your claim is against the owner and driver or the other vehicle. If that driver left the scene without exchanging information, then it violates Florida 316.063. You may process the claim through your insurance carrier or the driver/owner's insurance company.
The location of the event is not in and of itself a basis to hold the premises owner (commercial or residential) liable for damages. There would have to be some other facts, and corresponding law, providing the basis for liability of the property owner.
