Airbnb Has Robust Protection for Guests
While the facts will vary based on the country in which you are staying, Airbnb generally provides their hosts with Host Protection Insurance. In most cases, this will end up being the coverage that applies to your stay. It is $1 million worth of coverage. As a result, it is likely that any initial coverage ill come from Airbnb’s insurance company.
There Are Limits to Airbnb’s Coverage
On the surface it may seem simple: If you have a valid slip and fall or other premises liability claim while staying in an Airbnb property, you will have up to $1 million in coverage. However, this is a per-occurrence basis. In the event of serious or catastrophic injury, or numerous parties being injured, this $1 million can be used up faster than you may think. In that case, you would need to talk to a personal injury attorney to determine what your best legal options are.
Likewise, there are specific issues that are not covered by Airbnb. This includes any issues related to asbestos, product liability, and Chinese drywall claims. Again, this coverage can also vary by country. You would want to contact an attorney in the country in which you were injured.
