The issue really is vehicle ownership. If you both owned the vehicle, you can both be sued. You should talk to your insurance company right away and let them know about the accident. They should hire a lawyer for you both if necessary.

In an auto accident in Florida, regardless of whose name appears on the insurance, the people who can be sued are the driver of the vehicle causing the accident, and the title owner(s) of the vehicle involved in the accident.
