Are parents liable for car accidents of 18-year-old drivers who are in college but live at home?
18-year-old driver has own car own insurance . Can parents be sued personally for damages caused by the child?
Once a child reaches age 18 they are of "majority age". That is, they are now adults under the law and responsible for their own actions. The only way a parent could be held liable for an accident at this point is if they knowingly let their childdrive their while intoxicated or otherwise impaired.
Note: This holds true for anybody that they may give their car to under such circumstances; not just their child.
