Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
If you are father's power of attorney, you just have the power to act on his behalf with regard to any financial matters that he may need you to act on. But this doesn't make you responsible for his actions and if he were to wreck and injure someone, you are not liable, only he, or his estate is.
So you have no personal liability for his actions.
With that said, if you feel that he is unsafe, you can contact the local drivers licensing agency and make them aware of your concerns. Law enforcement officers and physicians represent the majority of individuals submitting reports, although concerned citizens also can do so. If a state agency finds a complaint reasonable and credible, it may ask the reported driver to submit additional information, which could be used to help determine if a screening or assessment is justified.
