What is Airbnb’s host protection insurance?
Airbnb offers Host Protection Insurance for the owners of Airbnb listings. The first $1 million of compensation will come from Airbnb and not the owner of the Airbnb listing and property. However, the first $1 million in coverage does not generally cover the following:
- Contractual liability
- Lost wages as a result of injuries
- Injuries caused by intentional acts
- Communicable diseases
- Injuries sustained due to a guest’s intoxication.
Am I qualified for compensation after an Airbnb accident?
If $1 million does not cover the entirety of your injuries’ cost such as surgery costs, and hospital bills, it is important that you retain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney who will work to acquire the additional compensation you deserve. Having an attorney in your corner will allow them to prove that you were injured as a direct result of the host or landlord’s negligence. To discover how our firm can assist you, reach out today to schedule your initial consultation with our team. Our firm is experienced in handling personal injury claims. We will work to recover any evidence necessary to support your case. This may include surveillance footage or security camera footage of the accident as it happened. We will also work to obtain the following evidence:
- Medical documentation
- Police reports
- Witness statements
- Photos of the safety hazard that caused the accident.
What is the statute of limitations for an Airbnb accident in Florida?
The statute of limitations for Airbnb accidents in Florida is generally four years. This means that you will have four years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the negligent party responsible for your accident. The sooner you can bring attention to your claim, the better. Failure to file your claim within four years may result in being permanently time-barred from suing. To get started with this process as soon as possible, reach out to our experienced personal injury firm. Our legal team will work to satisfy the burden of proof to recover the compensation you require to heal.
