What Types of Airbnb Accidents Might a Guest Encounter?
Airbnbs have become all the rage in the US and abroad. Currently, there are 23,000 Airbnbs in Los Angeles alone. They are not at all immune to guests getting injured on the premises. There are many ways that you can be hurt in an Airbnb location if you are not careful – and sometimes, even if you are. From being neglectful to overlooking dangers when they should have tended to them, examples of Airbnb accidents include:
- Slip and fall injuries. This type of accident can be cause by broken stairs or steps, wet conditions caused by excess moisture, leaky appliances that puddle and cause hazards, obstacles in the yard, sidewalk, or in the house can be dangerous as many other situations can be as well.
- Dog bites. If the fencing at the Airbnb isn’t secure, a dog from next door or a stray wandering around can get in and attack. This is also common in front lawns which are not secured.
- Bed bugs. Bed bugs are a common issue. The bugs can infest a location from previous tenants and may even get into the guest’s belongings and travel home with them. Bed bugs bite and can cause pain and infection.
- Assault and battery. Whether it’s from the Airbnb being in a dangerous area or if the incident happened by the property owner, a former guest who gained access, or a complete stranger, the host or owner of the Airbnb has the responsibility to keep the premises safe.
What Harm Could Parties Staying at Airbnb’s Suffer?

Airbnb’s Liability for Sexual Assault and Assault and Battery
One injury that is, unfortunately, not unheard of at Airbnb locations is sexual assault and battery. Such incidences are physically and mentally difficult. They can be harmful in the present and also in the future. We leave no stone unturned. If the owner or landlord’s negligence and/or irresponsibility led to your being sexually assaulted, wait no longer. They are responsible legally to keep you reasonably safe. If they failed to do that, they failed you and must be held accountable. For instance, if there was such an incident in the past and the listing wasn’t removed, they can very well be held responsible for your injury.

Electrocutions, Burn Injuries, and Other Electric Shock Injuries – Liability of Property Owner and Airbnb
Airbnb hazards are everywhere. One of the most dangerous is accidents caused by exposed outlets and wires, electronics that are positioned too close to a water supply, faulty electrical equipment, defective products, and so much more. Even electronics by the pool or hot tub can pose serious risks. All of the above situations are potential dangers since they can cause electrical shocks leading to minor or major burns, loss of consciousness or even death. If you encountered injuries due to burns, electrocution, or electric shock, you may be able to be compensated. Call our office today to learn more.
Injuries and Liability from Slip and Falls, Trip and Falls, and Falling Objects

When an incident happens and the landlord or owner should have done something to prevent it or warned you about it, there’s a problem.
