People often wonder if they can sue a family member for a slip, trip, and fall accident. The answer is yes. There is no law barring you from suing a family member if you were injured through their negligence. If you were hurt on a family member's property because of unsafe conditions that they did not address, you can sue them for damages. You may be concerned about taking money from a family member, but if they have insurance, your compensation will be from the insurance company, not directly from your family member.
