Question for the Money Doctors

Question

A friend of ours was helping us in our home . Electric saw jumped and cut of parts of 3 fingers. His work is not going to pay him during time off. Surgeon is saying 12 weeks. Is there anything our homeowners policy could help with?

Answer

Your insurance policy will probably not reimburse your friend for lost wages unless it is proven that you, the homeowner, are at fault for his injury. In the event that a claim is filed, the insurer will make a determination if there was negligence and will compensate the claimant accordingly.
