How should I approach their family about paying for her emergency room bills and follow-up visits?
When your child is hurt at a friend’s house, the aftermath can be especially difficult to navigate. Your first concern is making sure that your daughter is safe and able to get the medical care she needs to recover. But once the initial shock has passed, you may be faced with the possibility of ruining your friendship with the property owner in order to get payment for the medical expenses his or her negligence caused.
Without more information about exactly what happened to your daughter, it’s difficult to give a clear answer about how to approach the other family. It is best to consult with our Orange County Injury Attorneys about your specific case.
In California, your next step may be very different depending on the details of the incident, including:
- Where your daughter fell
- The extent of her injuries and medical care
- If the property owner was actually responsible for the defect or dangerous conditions that caused the fall
- Who witnessed the fall
- How willing the property owner is to cooperate
