As the owner of a vehicle in Kent, you (and others) owe a duty of care to each other that your cars, trucks or SUV's not cause them any harm out on the road. That duty is typically fulfilled by you and other vehicle owners driving safely. Yet does it also extend to vehicle owners permitting others to use their vehicles? If you are involved in an accident caused by a driver who was using another's vehicle, then you might wonder what sort of liability the vehicle owner may face. That all depends on whether negligent entrustment applies to your case.
When a pregnant woman is murdered or killed due to someone else's negligence, the news is quick to make sure everyone knows the woman was pregnant. In some states, this is irrelevant from a legal standpoint because those states do not have fetal homicide laws. In Washington, though, there is such a law.
