This is a tricky and sticky situation for sure.
If you are injured on a loved one or family member’s property, don’t fret, you do not have to sue them immediately to recover for your injuries. As long as they have insurance, and the insurance company does what is right, you can make your claim for all medical bills, pain and suffering, etc through that applicable insurance company. Having said that, the lawsuit is the stick that a personal injury lawyer carries, so that the insurance company gives up the proverbial carrot. Should a lawsuit be deemed necessary, it has been our experience that most family members understand that it is not personal and most understand that the real reason for the lawsuit is an insurance company’s cheapness.
