A: A Delaware attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. Until you're able to consult with a local attorney as to the operation of insurance law in Delaware, in most places, that should not create liability for the credit card holder. It's usually the vehicle owner and policyholder who is named in accidents, not third-party payors doing it as a favor for someone. Again, this is generally true nationwide - for state-specific law, a Delaware attorney could advise more definitely. Good luck
