Short-Term Rental (Airbnb/VRBO) Injury Claims

Short-Term Rental (Airbnb/VRBO) Injury Claims in the Bay Area

Just like other personal injury claims or lawsuits, claims involving short-term rentals (STRs) are based on negligence.  If you have been injured at an STR, you may have a claim not only against the owner or host of the property, but also against the company or platform you booked the reservation on.  Just as a hotel would have to compensate you if you were injured due to their negligence during your stay, an STR, like Airbnb or VRBO, may also be liable for injuries you sustained during your stay at one of their properties.

At Mitchell & Danoff Law Firm, we fight for clients and help them obtain compensation not only from the homeowners or hosts of these STRs, but also the companies that you may book your stays on.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Should I hire a lawyer for my personal injury case?
    There are several reasons for hiring a lawyer to represent you in your personal injury claim, rather than representing yourself. 1.) It allows you to focus on your own recovery, rather than the complicated details of your case. 2.) By hiring a skilled personal injury attorney to research your case and represent you in court, your chances of success improve drastically.
  • How long will my personal injury case take to resolve?

    This number can vary from one case to another, depending on the details of your situation. A lawsuit can take anywhere from several months to several years to settle.

  • What is the average settlement amount for a personal injury claim?

    The average compensation amount for a personal injury case is anywhere from $3,000 to $75,000, depending on what type of damages you are pursuing.

  • Does California put damage caps on claims for personal injury cases?

    Yes. California Civil Code section 3333.2 sets a cap on the amount of non-economic damages (pain and suffering) that can be recovered in a medical malpractice case. The maximum amount that may be recovered is $250,000.
