Airbnb Accidents in NYC | What You Should Know

As you may know, many people now prefer to use Airbnb services rather than stay in conventional hotels. This is for a variety of reasons, as Airbnb services are often cheaper, and even nicer than standard hotels. That being said, there are times where Airbnb hosts, such as the person who owns the building and is renting out your room, can put you in danger through negligence. That being said, if you were injured in an Airbnb because of unsafe conditions, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you heal. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Bronx personal injury attorney to learn more about Airbnb accidents in NYC, how Airbnb’s insurance policy works, and how we can help you through every step of the claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How does Airbnb’s Host Protection Insurance help those who’ve been injured in Airbnb accidents?

Airbnb’s Host Protection Insurance is a fantastic tool for those who’ve been injured in Airbnb accidents. To start, Airbnb will offer up to $1 million in liability coverage to anyone who has been wrongfully injured in an Airbnb. If you are injured in an Airbnb, you will have to sue Airbnb’s insurance company, not the landlord directly. That said, you should understand that Airbnb will only cover certain types of injuries. For example, those injured because they were intoxicated or because they were involved in an auto accident on the premises cannot sue Airbnb’s insurance. You also cannot sue if you sustained an intentional injury, such as getting into a fist fight.

What happens if $1 million from Airbnb isn’t enough?

There are times where injuries are so serious that Airbnb’s cap of $1 million is not enough. As you may know, surgeries, overnights, rehabilitation, and other medical services can quickly rack up bills. Fortunately, if you find that your injuries have caused you to sustain more than $1 million in damages, your Bronx personal injury attorney can fight for the full compensation to which you are entitled. Ensure that you do not wait to seek legal assistance, as there is a statute of limitations in place that determines how long a person has to bring a personal injury claim. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in NYS is three years, but it is always best to speak with an attorney long before then. Our firm is here to help you today.
