Philadelphia Airbnb Rental Injury Lawyer

Table of Contents

    Offering affordable, convenient guest accommodations in all types of sizes and layouts, Airbnb has risen to popularity as a trendy alternative to hotels and motels. Using the Airbnb app or website, which allows users to book rental properties from thousands of hosts across the U.S., guests can rent rooms, floors, or entire houses, staying anywhere from a few days to a few months. Unfortunately, Airbnb may also have a dark side: the risk of guest injuries. When Airbnb hosts are negligent, the affected properties can develop serious hazards, posing safety threats that can cause accidents and claim lives.

    Can You Sue Airbnb for an Injury in Pennsylvania?

    A commonly asked question in lawsuits against Airbnb is, “Does Airbnb insurance cover guest injuries?” The answer is that Airbnb insurance provides up to $1 million in liability insurance coverage for injuries sustained by guests while staying at the property. In addition to bodily (physical) injury, this coverage also extends to property damage, such as destruction of the guest’s personal belongings.

    Unfortunately, obtaining financial compensation from Airbnb hosts often proves to be challenging for injured guests, due to the complex network of regulations surrounding claims of this nature. It is in your best interests to approach the insurance negotiations process with highly experienced legal counsel, like the Philadelphia Airbnb lawsuit attorneys of the Reiff Law Firm, who will work to protect your rights and maximize your recovery while obtaining the necessary evidence to support your claim.

    Various types of compensation, called “damages,” may be recoverable if you were injured due to the negligence of one or more parties, including individuals and businesses. Negligence is a multi-faceted concept, but can be summarized as a careless failure to meet basic safety standards, resulting in preventable death or injury to another person. If an Airbnb host’s negligence led to your accident and the resulting injuries, the host may be liable for your losses, including financial losses, anticipated financial losses, and other types of harm that are more difficult to calculate, such as the pain and suffering caused by your injuries. In addition to pain and suffering, other examples of damages that may be available in an Airbnb injury lawsuit include compensation for medical expenses, anticipated medical care, loss of earnings, diminished earning capacity, and property damage. In a wrongful death lawsuit, compensation for funeral and burial expenses may also be recoverable.

    It is important to act swiftly if you believe you could have a claim. Strict time limits create short windows for building and filing your case – and moreover, delaying can cause key evidence to deteriorate. The sooner you discuss your potential claim with an attorney, the sooner you may be able to get compensated for your Airbnb injuries.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

    I was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
