    Yes, but to prevail will require a showing of negligence. On these limited facts, that showing is probably lacking. Do speak with local/qualified counsel. Bear in mind, there may be some medical coverage in the landlords (or your tenants - if she was not residing with you) policy.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Sorry that your son is injured. Hopefully, he will have an uneventful recovery. Always speak with a qualified personal injury attorney asap. More importantly, injuries, and in particular head injuries, may take several days or weeks to begin to show symptoms. Do not speak with insurance company until you speak with an attorney. Good luck.
