If I let my neighbor borrow my tractor and he gets hurt or killed using it can I be held liable?
yes Obviously, this is a question best posed to an attorney. However, generally speaking, yes, you may be held liable. If the tractor had any defects that you knew or should have known about, if you knew your neighbor did not know the correct way to use the tractor or if you knew it was to be used for anything other than its intended use, you can be held liable. However, the best source of information is a licensed, practicing attorney. <P>If this situation has happened already, contact your insurance company immediately. They will most likely retain an attorney on your behalf. Either way, seek legal counsel.</P>
