Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney – We Were Hit By A 17 Year Old, Parents Own The Car Who Can We Sue For Injuries?

Under Georgia law, you have several options on who to pursue for your injuries.  Of course you should first go after the 17 year old because they were the ones driving.

You may have other causes of action against the parents, for negligent entrustment.  Another cause of action which may or may not apply is the Family Purpose Doctrine which is a special doctrine of law for the State of Georgia.

The family purpose doctrine is fact specific and does not apply in all claims so you will want to speak directly with a Georgia personal injury lawyer to discuss specific facts related to your claim.

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle collision or motorcycle collision and the at-fault driver was a minor (meaning under 18), contact an Savannah Injury Attorney to find out your legal rights at 912-508-4711 in Savannah or 770-948-5454 in Atlanta.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
