Filing a Claim Against a Relative
Suing a Family Member in Schuylkill County, PA
If you were injured and a family member is to blame, you probably have questions about recovering compensation from their insurance provider. How can you proceed with a case? Will your insurance policy even allow it? Will your relative be held personally accountable, or will the claim be paid by their provider?
These are all issues our Schuylkill County attorneys can address. Filing an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit against a relative is a complicated matter in more ways than one. Pennsylvania does not recognize family immunity, meaning you can bring forth a lawsuit if your injuries resulted from a loved one’s negligence. However, you may have personal reservations, or your policy may have limitations on such conduct. We can discuss the specific circumstances with you to see what options you have.
