In some cases, an Airbnb host may fail to ensure that their property is safe before their customer’s check-in. As a result, accidents can happen and can cause severe life-long injuries and financial burdens. If you were injured in an Airbnb accident, it is in your best interest to reach out to Lutz Injury Law as soon as possible and speak with a skilled New Jersey personal injury attorney.
What do I do if I was injured in an Airbnb accident in New Jersey?
It is important to take certain steps after you have been injured in an Airbnb. The first, and probably the most obvious, is that you should seek medical treatment. This will ensure that your injuries are properly evaluated and treated, while concurrently providing you with medical documentation that will be useful evidence in a future personal injury claim. Furthermore, you will want to collect proof of the accident. This can include taking photos and videos at the scene and accumulating the contact information of anyone who witnessed your accident.
Another big step is to retain the services of a skilled New Jersey personal injury attorney. It is also important to keep in mind that New Jersey has a statute of limitations of two years for personal injury claims. This suggests that if you do not file your Airbnb accident claim within two years from the date of your accident, you will likely lose the opportunity to recover the compensation you deserve. Reach out to an attorney as soon as possible to begin the process and ensure you are promptly meeting all of your claim’s deadlines.
Do not hesitate to reach out to our firm today to retain the services of a skilled New Jersey personal injury attorney.
What is Airbnb’s host protection insurance?
Airbnb offers Host Protection Insurance for the owners of Airbnb listings in the event that a guest is injured on their property. If you are injured in an Airbnb, the first $1 million of compensation will come from Airbnb rather than the host or landlord of the property. However, it is important to understand 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.
If you were injured in an accident while in an Airbnb, you will need to reach out to a skilled attorney to evaluate the specifics of your case and determine the best course of action for you.
