Motorized vehicle injury liability

January 27, 2012

If you own a farm tractor and the operation of the tractor harms someone, you are strictly liable for the injury, according to the Florida Supreme Court opinion issued on January 19,2012. A car is the best example of a dangerous instrumentality. If you allow someone to drive your car, and they cause an accident, you are liable, period, simply because you own the car and allowed a person to use this dangerous instrumentality. So, now the same goes for tractors,golf carts, trucks, buses airplanes, tow-motors and other motorized vehicles. If you are injured by any motorized vehicle, call me today.
