Can I Sue Vrbo for an Injury?
Were you seriously injured while vacationing in a Vrbo? Do you have reason to believe the Vrbo host or Vrbo itself is to blame for your injuries? If so, you may be able to recover compensation for your suffering with the assistance of an experienced Vrbo injury lawyer.
Read on to learn more about when it might be appropriate to file a premises liability lawsuit against a Vrbo host and when to file a claim with Vrbo to get the money you could be entitled to.
Lawsuits against Vrbo Hosts
You may have the opportunity to file a claim against your Vrbo host if you were injured on their property through no fault of your own. This is because the property owner is expected to ensure that the property they are renting out is safe for their patrons at all times.
Typically, you would first need to file a claim with their homeowner’s insurance. But many insurance companies will refuse to provide coverage when a home is being used as a “limited use” rental. In these cases, you may need to bring the Vrbo host to court and/or file a claim with Vrbo themselves.
Vrbo’s $1 Million Liability Insurance
Vrbo has a $1 million liability insurance policy that is designed to protect both patrons who are injured in Vrbo homes and Vrbo hosts whose properties are damaged by their guests.
But the limit on these policies is only $1 million, and while that may seem like a significant amount of coverage, it is quite possible that your medical expenses alone could exceed that number. If this is the case, bringing your claim to court might be the best way to maximize your injury settlement.
