Am I liable if my senior parent has a car accident?

This question comes up occasionally. The answer is generally, no.

However, there may be liability if you own, provide, or maintain the automobile for a senior parent, and/or you allow a senior parent drive your vehicle and know or should know that the senior parent’s ability to operate a motor vehicle is diminished.

This is a short and simple answer, not a substitute for legal advice. Contact an attorney for advice about your circumstances.
