What Is Negligent Entrustment?
- The owner had an exclusive or superior right of control of the vehicle
- The owner knew, or should have known that the driver was not able to operate the vehicle safely but allowed him or her to drive anyways
- The act of entrustment proximately caused your injuries
- The issue of the owner’s knowledge would be central to your case. You would have to show that the owner had either actual or constructive knowledge of the driver’s lack of ability. If the driver was drunk, the owner knew it, and the owner let him or her drive anyways, the owner had actual knowledge of the driver’s incompetence.
