What do I do if I was injured in an Airbnb accident in Florida?
If you were injured in an Airbnb as a result of another’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation. If you would like to pursue legal action, you will have to fulfill the burden of proof. In other words, you will be responsible for gathering evidence to support your claim. First, you will want to seek medical attention immediately after the accident. This will allow you to be able to treat your injuries, while also giving you medical documentation that can be an important part of your future personal injury claim. Also, you will want to gather as much evidence as possible from the accident itself, including photos and videos of the scene and contact information of any witnesses of the accident.
What is Airbnb’s host protection insurance?
Airbnb has its own insurance coverage, known as Host Protection Insurance because Airbnb recognizes that accidents happen. This insurance policy provides injured Airbnb guests with up to $1 million in compensation for claims brought against third parties. This suggests that if you obtain financial compensation for your accident, it will be from Airbnb, rather than the host of the property. However, it is important to note that there are some events for which Airbnb’s insurance will not provide coverage. These examples include the following:
- Property issues, such as bed bugs, asbestos, communicable diseases, or certain other unsafe living conditions
- Auto accidents, such as car accidents occurring on the premises
- Intentional acts, such as a guest fighting with another person and sustaining an injury
- Accusations of slander or defamation of character
If you were injured as a result of any of the above events, you may be able to receive compensation, however, it may not be from Airbnb. Do not wait to reach out to our firm today to speak with our skilled personal injury attorneys about the specifics of your case and your options.
