With the widespread success of home-sharing companies like Airbnb comes a lot of questions and precarious situations. If someone is injured or damages property while occupying an Airbnb rental, determining liability is not always clear. If you are injured in an Airbnb rental, you have no assurance that Airbnb, the host or the host's landlord will be liable for negligence or compensate you for your injuries. Likewise, if you are an Airbnb host and a renter vandalizes your home or steals your property, you may find your homeowner's insurance policy inadequate to cover this type of harm.
