Personal Injuries Caused by Friends and Family

A personal injury claim involves one party claiming compensation from another for injuries sustained in an accident that was not their fault.

However, when that injury is caused by a friend or family member, the victim may not know what to do next.

It is possible to receive compensation for this kind of accident without jeopardising the relationship you have with your friend or family member, and Croftons Solicitors can help you achieve this.

How These Claims Work

Crucially, when you claim compensation for accidents caused by friends or family you are often not claiming against the individual, but rather their insurance company.

For example, if you are injured in the home of a family member, for example by a faulty electrical appliance or a slip, trip or fall, you may be able to claim compensation from their home insurer.

One of the most common cases we see involves accidents on the road, usually where a family member is driving the vehicle that caused the collision.

In this instance, whoever was driving will have an insurance policy that will pay out compensation to you.

In all these cases, all your friend or family member will need to do is complete a few formalities related to their insurance policy, so you will not have to confront them directly.
