The law holds that an employer is responsible for the wrongful acts, including negligent driving, of an employee while the employee is in the course and scope of their employment.
However, a parent can also be held responsible, not simply as the owner of the motor vehicle, but fully responsible for the actions of and damages caused by a minor child, if that parent lends the family motor vehicle to a minor child knowing the child to be incompetent, reckless, a habitual drunk or user of drugs, a repeat offender of traffic codes causing accidents and injuries to others or when they are untrained, unlicensed and inexperienced.
The evidence that will satisfy a court will vary from court to court and from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but the greater the evidence of negligent entrustment, the greater the likelihood that the parent will be found responsible for the actions of a minor child driving their motor vehicle.
