Are We Liable for Our Mom's Unsafe Driving?

Children are not liable for their parents’ actions unless the children participated in some way. So, if your mother gets into an accident, you will not be legally responsible if you didn’t provide her with the car or help in any other way. That said, you might want to do what you can to protect other drivers and pedestrians by disabling your mother’s car or making a report to the Department of Motor Vehicles, especially if she has dementia and it is worsening.
