    Answered . You should have homeowner's or renter's insurance and that should cover you for any claim by your friend. Often there is a no-fault medical bill payment provision which is often between $1,000-$5,000, the insurer should be willing to pay any of the medical bills within this amount upon notification and submission of the medical records and bills from the provider(s).
