What happens when someone else causes an accident while driving your car? Are you liable for the damages caused by this irresponsible driver? Our most recent podcast launched a new series on third-party liability. Today, Steve and Rebecca pick up with our second installment, defenses raised by third party owners. In addition to the usual negligence defenses, owners raise additional arguments to challenge their own liability. Using multi-state case law as real-life examples, Steve and Rebecca travel from Oregon to Washington, DC to explain how to address these defenses, from shifting the burden of proof, to proving ownership, to key-in-ignition statutes that attach liability to the owner even if the vehicle was stolen.
