It is not uncommon for an individual to get injured in an Airbnb accident. If you are in this unfortunate situation, you will need to retain the services of a skilled New York personal injury attorney as soon as possible to ensure that you and your future are protected.

What do I do if I was injured in an Airbnb Accident in New York?

If you were injured in an Airbnb accident, you will need to take several important steps to recover compensation for your injuries. If you would like to pursue legal action, you will need to satisfy the burden of proof. This implies that you will have to present evidence pointing to the negligence of another party and how that caused your injury. You can do this by taking photos and videos of the scene of the accident. Furthermore, if someone witnessed your accident, it is helpful to obtain their contact information. Witnesses may have further information that could potentially bolster your claim.

It is also important to note that personal injury claims in New York are very time-sensitive. The statute of limitations is generally three years for most personal injury claims. This means if you do not file within three years of the accident, you will likely lose your chance to receive compensation. In order to be sure that you do not miss any important deadlines, reach out to one of our skilled personal injury attorneys as soon as possible to get started.

What is Airbnb’s host protection insurance?

It is important to note that Airbnb has Host Protection Insurance for the owners of Airbnb listings in the case that a guest is injured in their space. If you are hurt in an Airbnb, the first $1 million of compensation will come from Airbnb instead of the host or landlord of the property. However, it is important to realize that there are some injuries that are not covered by Airbnb. These include contractual liability, lost wages as a result of injuries, injuries caused by intentional acts, communicable diseases, or injuries sustained due to a guest’s intoxication.
