Family Car


A recurrent problem arises in auto accident cases in which the party at fault is a minor driving a car owned by a parent. The plaintiff sues the parent-owner, but to recover the plaintiff must prove that the minor was driving the car with the parent-owner's permission. Typically the plaintiff has no proof of this beyond proof of the relationship between the parent and the driver.

What procedural strategies would make sense for resolving these cases?
