What do I do if I was injured in an Airbnb accident in New York?
If you would like to pursue legal action after an Airbnb accident, you will need to satisfy the burden of proof. This means that you are responsible for providing all of the evidence necessary to craft your personal injury claim. Thus, you will want to follow several steps after your injury. The first step is to seek medical attention as soon as you can. This will ensure that your injuries are properly assessed and treated, while also providing you with the medical documentation you need to show the severity and origin of your injuries. Additionally, you will want to gather proof of the accident. Typically, this includes taking photos and videos at the scene and gathering the contact information of anyone who was a witness to your accident.
Another significant step you can take is to reach out to an experienced New York personal injury attorney. You will need to file your claim as soon as you can because New York has a statute of limitations of three years for personal injury claims. This means that if you do not file your Airbnb accident claim within three years from the date of your accident, you will lose the chance to recover the compensation you need to feel whole again.
Do not wait to reach out to an attorney right away so that you can begin the claims process and promptly meet all of the important deadlines.
What is Airbnb’s host protection insurance?
Airbnb understands that accidents can happen, which is why they have Host Protection Insurance for the owners of Airbnb listings in the event that a guest is injured on their property. If you are hurt 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 incorporated into Airbnb’s insurance policy. These exceptions include:
- Intentional acts, like a guest fighting with another person and sustaining an injury
- Accusations of slander or defamation of character
- Property issues, such as bed bugs, asbestos, communicable diseases, or other unsafe living conditions
- Auto accidents, such as car accidents that happen on the premises
