If a fight happens during a party on your property can the guest who's teeth got knocked out sue your homeowners insurance even though they have assault charges placed on them?

Yes. It doesn't mean that they will collect, but they can sue.In the UK - the owner of a property owes a duty to visitors to the property should an accident occur on the premises. However, a criminal act is very different as this is a deliberate wilful act and not an accident. Thus unless there is some reason that the home owner in someway contributed to causing the fight any claim lies between the two parties who were fighting. If the person whose teeth were knocked out did not consent to the fight and was merely defending himself then a claim for compensation could be made against the criminal injuries compensation authority. See the related link entitled "criminal injury" to see the process of claiming criminal injuries compensation.

Are minor children entitled to compensation in an accident?

"are my minor children entitled to compensation for being passengers in an accident that was not my fault. ? they were bruised up. no major injuries." Certainly they are entitled to compensation if they were injured. The amount would depend on the severity of the injuries and if they received any medical treatment. If you are in an auto accident and have any injuries at all always go immediately to the emergency room. If you do not the insurance comapny will try to say you were not injured. lwpat
