you should consult a lawyer in your area who practices personal injury litigation to review the facts to determine if there is a case. further a lawyer can inquire as to whether the home owner has insurance that contains a medpay provision that will pay 1000 and perhaps as much as 5000 for dental expenses.
a lawyer can assist you in the answering the issues you have posed.
without a detailed review by a lawyer can all the issues raised in your question be appropriately addressed...nothing in this response should be construed as establishing a lawyer client relationship..the answers herein are for informational purposes and not to be construed as advice
I agree with Mr. Tomberg. The homeowner likely has insurance for this type of accident. A personal injury attorney in your area will be able to help you.
Considering that your daughter was at a friends house, you will probably want to speak with the homeowners first, prior to taking any legal action and explain to them how expensive the medical procedures will be and why you need to make a claim against their insurance. It is likely they will understand and hopefully the friendship between your family and theirs will remain strong. Unfortunately, many times, when people seek legal advice and take legal action against a friend without first informing their friend, the friend gets upset and the friendship is damaged. It is important to explain to them that you do not have any intention on suing them personally, only their insurance company.
I agree with the other two answers. Your friend most likely has insurance that can help cover some, if not all of your daughter's medical expenses. I suggest that you talk to your friend about the situtation before making a claim on their insurance. I also suggest that you talk to an attorney in your area with any questions you have.
