What do I do if I was injured in an Airbnb accident in New Jersey?
If you have been injured in an Airbnb accident, you will need to collect as much evidence as possible to increase the chances of having a successful claim. First, you will want to seek medical attention immediately after the accident. This will ensure that your injuries are treated, while also giving you medical documentation that can be an important part of your future personal injury claim. Also, you will want to gather as much evidence as possible from the accident itself, including photos and videos of the scene and contact information of any witnesses of the accident.
What is Airbnb’s host protection insurance?
Airbnb understands that accidents happen. That is why they provide Host Protection Insurance for the owners of Airbnb listings in situations where a guest gets hurt. If you were hurt in an Airbnb, the first $1 million of compensation will come from Airbnb, rather than the host or landlord of the property. However, there are some instances in which the policies are not included in Airbnb’s insurance policy. 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.
What if Airbnb’s insurance does not provide enough coverage?
In some cases, there are instances in which $1 million does not cover the damages incurred. This can occur if your injury results in a long hospital stay or several surgeries. If you are in this unfortunate situation, you will need to retain the services of a skilled personal injury attorney who can fight on your behalf and obtain the compensation you deserve. It is also important to keep in mind that you will need to file your personal injury claim as soon as possible because New Jersey has a statute of limitations of two years for most personal injury claims. This means that if you fail to file your claim within two years, you will lose the opportunity to win compensation.
