I am assuming that you do not live at your sister’s, but you were visiting.  If that is the case then her insurance would be available to pay for your injuries.  Her homeowner policy provides medical payments coverage as well as the personal liability coverage provided by the policy.  The personal liability portion usually applies if there is negligence by the policy owner.  It will pay up to the limits shown for injuries as well as any other amounts that may be awarded by a court. 

Your sister should call her insurance agent and explain what has happened and ask to report a claim.  An adjuster will then be assigned to the claim and speak with you and your sister to determine what happened.  They will then work with you to pay for your injuries.
