If someone drives my car drunk, am I responsible for the damages?

If you allow someone to drive your car while they are drunk or under the influence of drugs, you may be held liable for the injuries and/or damages they cause in a car accident.

The injured party must prove the essential elements of “negligent entrustment."

For more information on negligent entrustment of a vehicle to an intoxicated driver, please see our blog.
