A slip and fall injury can be a serious damage to suffer, and it can be the basis of a personal injury lawsuit or premises liability claim if it happens in a place of business. AirBNB locations are rife with dangerous places on the property that contribute to slip and fall accidents. If you were injured in a slip and fall accident at an AirBNB, you could take legal action and sue the company and the host for compensation. Kenmore Law Group will gladly help you receive every penny you deserve from the claim.

How do slip and fall accidents happen at AirBNB homes?

Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of incident that occurs in the home. Many people slip and fall even in their own homes that they are very familiar with, so it is no surprise that falls occur in unfamiliar locations. However, there are sometimes many hazards and issues that create dangerous situations. A few causes of slip and fall accidents at an AirBNB include:

  • Broken handrails on stairs
  • Broken stairs
  • Defective steps
  • Ladders with missing rungs
  • Potholes in the sidewalk
  • Holes in the ground in the yard
  • Unfinished basement
  • Rotting or dead wooden floors
  • Leaking appliances and showers or tubs
  • Slick or overly waxed or oiled floors in the house
  • Torn carpeting

These slip and fall accidents can result in a number of injuries, including concussions and traumatic brain injuries, broken bones in the spine and legs, torn muscles and nerve damage, internal organ damage, paralysis, and much more. In the worst cases, an individual can die from the injuries he suffered, especially older or elderly guests who cannot properly catch their falls or who have a history of damages from falling.

How can I sue AirBNB for a slip and fall injury?

In order to sue AirBNB for a slip and fall injury, you must have ample proof of the incident and your claim must fulfill certain requirements. You will be filing a premises liability lawsuit against the company, which is based on hazardous property that was the catalyst to an accident. All AirBNB premises liability claims meet at least one of these points:

  • The AirBNB owner knew about the hazard at the property but did not alert you or the company to the presence of it
  • The owner caused the hazard to happen in the first place
  • The owner was unaware of the incident but reasonably should have been if he were a more meticulous and attentive host or caretaker

Furthermore, you must be able to prove that you were a guest at the AirBNB. Premises liability claims can be filed by one of three types of visitors: invitees, licensees, or trespassers. Invitees are those who are on the property because of some kind of mutual benefit or exchange of money and goods or services. They are afforded the highest duty of care. Licensees are instead social guests or friends who are not present because of a service; they are expected to have a reasonable understanding of the property but are not owed more protection than an invite. Trespassers are those with the least rights and protections because they have no legal reason to be on the property. However, not all trespassing is done with the intention of causing a crime; some people simply take shortcuts through open yards, for example, on their way home. If any traps or hazards are deliberately placed to hurt the trespassers, they can take legal action.

What insurance does AirBNB have?

It is important to understand that AirBNB offers insurance to its hosts if their property is damages, but there are many exceptions, such as floods and theft. Unfortunately, this host protection is strictly limited to the host – the guests are not nearly as well covered, and they are not advertised as being protected.

This is due to the fact that homeowners and property owners are meant to have homeowner’s insurance, but this insurance is not active if the home is being used for a commercial purpose or being rented out for profits. Therefore, the host may not be able to provide any compensation through their insurance company. Thus, AirBNB must cover guests who were injured on the property. They often try to get out of such payments and claim that they are not providing rentals, and instead, are only providing platforms for the hosts to advertise their homes. Because they take profits and protect the hosts from damages, though, it is only fair for the company to pay off any claims if a slip and fall accident or other incident occurs.

What kind of compensation can I get from an AirBNB accident?

Victims of accidents at AirBNB locations should not be expected to pay for their own damages and expenses. If there were hazards present and dangers in the home or on the property, the owner and AirBNB should be held accountable.

The value of your lawsuit against AirBNB will vary depending on the severity of your injuries, the impact they had on your life and career, and how responsible you were for the accident. For example, if you caused the hazard and hurt yourself, you would likely not have a viable claim. However, if you were seriously injured because a hand railing broke while you were using it and you fell down the stairs, you may be able to receive a large sum of money The insurance agent handling your case will weigh these factors and determine an offer, and we will negotiate a better deal if we do not feel it is worthwhile.

Our firm will strive to bring you damages for:

  • Medical expenses for surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical rehabilitation, future procedures, and more
  • Lost wages from time spent away from work, and future missed income due to medical treatment or recovery time
  • Property damage if your personal belongings were lost or broken in the incident and must be replaced or repaired
  • Pain and suffering damages to cover PTSD, anxiety, fear, emotional stress, and more
  • Wrongful death damages in the event that a loved one or family member died on the property, which can result in funeral and burial expenses, pre-death medical bills, pre-death pain and suffering, loss of relations and consortium, loss of expected inheritance and savings, and more
  • Punitive damages, which are monetary amounts that are meant to punish the individual for gross negligence or an intent to cause harm, but these damages are often seen as too harsh or severe and are generally only won by skillful lawyers

Our attorneys have years of experience handling claims against AirBNB, and we know the most successful strategies for your case. We will do everything in our power t bring you the maximum settlement amount available.

How long do I have to sue AirBNB for a slip and fall accident?

According to California law, you have 2 years from the date of the injury to sue AirBNB for injuries from an accident. If you do not file a lawsuit within that deadline your claim will be voided and you will not be able to collect any compensation. Our attorneys always recommend filing a lawsuit quickly so your evidence is intact and not corrupted, and so that all involved parties are not at a disadvantage.

There are some scenarios in which the statute of limitations can be extended. You may have been underage when you were hurt, which would cause the statute of limitations to be suspended until you turn 18 years old, or you may have been left physically or mentally incapable of suing, which would pause the statute until you return to functionality. Further, there is the chance that the defendant left the state, which would suspend the statute of limitations until he returns.

Too often, individuals do not know that they are under a time limit for their claims and wind up missing the opportunity to sue. It is wise to contact an attorney to learn the exact deadlines and when your documents must be submitted. If you hire us, we will take care of the legal legwork for you and we will not miss the statute of limitations due to our professional and meticulous nature.
