Until June 1, Polk County, Wisconsin, had not had a fatal car accident in 2015. That all changed in a heartbeat when a minivan and a car collided, and one of the passengers in the car was killed.

What is negligent entrustment?

Negligent entrustment is a legal term used in tort law. It describes the concept that an individual can be held responsible for another person's actions if the individual has provided them with a "dangerous instrumentality" that then caused injury to a third party because of the person's use of the instrumentality. In simpler terms, consider as an example that a friend loans another friend his or her vehicle and the friend driving it causes an accident that harms another person. The friend that loaned the vehicle may then be considered legally responsible for the negligence of the friend that drove the car.
