Airbnb Accident and Injury Lawyer Miami, Broward, Palm Beach
In 2021, Airbnb saw 14,000 new rental listings posted each month on the platform.
Airbnb offers individuals a fast, affordable and convenient way to rent homes and rooms from property owners on a short-term basis. Travelers and vacationers can save a lot of money renting through Airbnb versus staying at a hotel. Not only that, but tenants can enjoy more amenities and spaciousness too.
Unfortunately, tenants are not immune to accidents and injuries when using Airbnb rentals. That is why if you have suffered an accident or injury during your stay at an Airbnb rental, you should learn more about your legal rights in these situations. The property owner may still be liable for any damages you experienced while renting their home or room.

When Do You Need to Hire an Airbnb Accident and Injury Lawyer?
Property owners are expected to provide safe accommodations when renting out their homes or rooms to tenants through the Airbnb rental platform. So if a property owner is negligent by failing to keep their property safe, they could be found liable for damages if a tenant gets injured during their stay.
Here are some examples of Airbnb rental conditions which could result in an accident or injury:
- Poor exterior and interior lighting
- Damaged flooring or stairs
- Pest infestation
- Faulty appliances
- Utility issues (e.g., water pipe leakage, exposed electrical wires)
The property owner is liable for even the slightest injury or illness you may incur. It doesn’t matter if it’s a sprained ankle, laceration, or broken bone. You have the right to pursue compensation in court for your medical bills, long-term rehabilitation costs, lost wages, emotional trauma, physical pain, etc.
Traditional homeowners insurance policies don’t typically cover Airbnb accidents and injuries, so you may not be successful in seeking compensation from the owner’s insurance company. But if the property owner has undertaken a Host Protection Insurance Policy from Airbnb, it may cover your bodily injury expenses up to $1 million.
Don’t handle a personal injury claim against an Airbnb property owner by yourself. Instead, it would be much better to seek the advice and representation of a qualified legal professional who has several years of experience handling Airbnb accident and injury claims.
An Airbnb accident and injury lawyer understands the negligence laws surrounding short-term and long-term rentals in Florida. Since Airbnb initiates the transaction between the tenant and host, it is possible to find Airbnb liable in some personal injury cases. Otherwise, compensation will have to be sought from the owner directly.
