Should I file a claim for a slip and fall accident injury at a friend or relative’s house?
I’ve represented clients over the years who have been involved in accidents at their friends’ or relatives’ homes, and there’s always one question that comes up: “Should I really prosecute a claim here? After all, this person is a good friend of mine. I don’t want to sue him or her.” It’s a valid question, but the question overlooks the fact that there’s typically insurance coverage that provides a vehicle of recovery. This is important, because your friend would probably want you to make the best physical and compensatory recovery that you’re entitled to under the law.
If you, a friend, or a family member is involved in a slip and fall accident at someone else’s house, I strongly recommend that you get pictures of the scene and that you give us a call. We have a long track record of representing clients successfully with these very types of claims.
