Accident Liability in Borrowed Vehicles

When a person loans his or her vehicle to someone else, that individual may be held liable for any accidents the driver causes. This is most often the case if a vehicle owner loans his or her car or truck to a motorist who is unfit to drive or reckless behind the wheel. Unfortunately, these careless drivers can cause devastating accidents in the borrowed vehicles.

If you’ve been hurt in a car accident because of someone else’s mistakes, you may want to consult with a legal advisor before filing a claim. We can help you determine who is at fault for your auto accident and seek the compensation you deserve. To learn more, contact a Charleston accident lawyer of the Steinberg Law Firm today by calling 843-720-2800.

LIABILITY FOR DRIVERS AND OWNERS

If a driver poses a threat to the safety of other motorists, a car owner’s responsibility is to make sure that his or her vehicle isn’t used by that driver. Owners need to be especially cautious when dealing with the following types of drivers:

  • Drivers without a valid permit or license
  • Drivers too young to qualify for a permit
  • Elderly drivers who can’t safely operate a vehicle
  • Drivers too sick to be behind the wheel
  • Drivers with medical conditions that should keep them from driving
  • Reckless drivers

In addition, some companies may be held responsible for the actions of drivers using their company cars. If any of these drivers causes an accident, the employer may be the one held liable by the courts.
