If you happen to suffer injury in a car accident because of another driver's negligence, very often that driver can be held accountable in a Minnesota court of law in a negligence lawsuit. Usually, the negligent driver is driving their own automobile, so legally speaking, that person would bear full responsibility for the injuries.
But, what if the negligent driver is not the owner of the car they were driving? Sometimes, it seems obvious that whoever entrusted their vehicle to the negligent driver made a poor decision. Is there a way to hold accountable the individual or entity that provided the vehicle to the negligent driver?
