    Speak Up! - View Question #18602


    printer friendly version

    Question: I flicked a staple and hit my friend in the eye. After he went to the doctor he found out that it scratched his cornea and now his parents' lawyer has sent us a letter saying they want my Mom's homeowners insurance number to pay, but I don't think that will even cover all the costs. Can he sue us for our house, cars, etc. too? Thanks.

    Answer: Your Mom's homeowners insurance will most likely cover all of the costs except for the deductible. Unless there is permanent damage to the eye, or some other extreme problem it will be a manageable amount and won't require the sale of your house or cars. He can't make your mom sell all of the stuff, he can simply get a judgment and try to collect the money.

    Wow, if i sued everyone who had ever casued me a soft tissue injury or broken bone or other ongoing ailment (especially as i play soccer), i would be a billionaire. There's nothing more annoying than people who sue for these things. That's what health insurance is for. And if you don't have health insurance i guess that is the peril of living in a country that does not look after its citizens. Uk / Australia = free hospital cover.

    I had a laceration (worse than a scratch) of my cornea from a teenage boy flicking a playing card at me. His family did not have homeowners insurance and my family in the end chose not to sue... The homeowner's insurance is likely to cover the damage, it is possible though that they could chose to pursue punitive damages from your mother personally and in addition to what the insurance will pay. "Punitive" are fines meant to punish and if you are truly sorry and comitted to not doing such stupid it might go over better.
