Understanding Your Right to Sue
Can you file an injury claim for the harm resulting from an incident on the premise of a VRBO rental? Do you have the right to sue for any harm resulting from a VRBO slip and fall, trip and fall, or drowning incident? Yes – you have the right to sue.
Who can you sue? If you or a member of your family suffered harm on the premises of a VRBO rental, you could sue the property owner. Your right to sue the owner of the rental is based on the concept of premise liability, which establishes that all property owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are free of any hazards or dangerous conditions that could lead to incidents and harm.
Typically, the property owner will be liable for any incidents that occur on the premises; however, VRBO could face liability under some circumstances. More specifically, you could sue VRBO only if the company’s negligence directly contributed to the incident and the harm suffered. What does this mean? If VRBO failed to inspect the property before listing it, actively ignored complaints of hazards or dangerous conditions on the premises, failed to screen the listing prior to activating it, or failed to deactivate the listing after receiving complaints, the company could be potentially proven negligent and liable for any incidents or harm.
Without a doubt, you have the right to pursue an injury claim for the harm resulting from an incident on the premises of a VRBO rental. If you are interested in learning more about your right to sue, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm immediately. Whether you are filing a slip and fall on property lawsuit or a lawsuit for a drowning incident, our VRBO accident lawyers in Los Angeles are ready to help you every step of the way.
VRBO Slip and Fall Lawsuits
Slip and fall accidents are among the most common types of personal injury accidents. These accidents can occur anywhere, including in VRBOs. If you or a member of your family suffered a slip and fall accident at a VRBO rental property, you could have the right to sue – the property owner and even VRBO, in some cases.

VRBO Trip and Fall Accident Lawsuits
Trip and fall accidents are very common and can occur practically anywhere. There could be a number of hazards throughout a VRBO property that can ultimately lead to a trip and fall accident. Some examples of these hazards include torn carpeting, exposed wires, uneven floors, broken tiles, broken concrete, blocked walkways, uneven steps, etc. Trip and fall accidents often lead to knee injuries, foot injuries, ankle injuries, wrist injuries, and even back injuries. If you or a loved one suffered a trip and fall accident on the premises of a VRBO, it is important that you seek legal assistance with a VRBO trip and fall lawyer.

For more information about the legal options available to you after a trip and fall accident at a premises of a VRBO, contact us today.
VRBO Shower Fall Lawsuits
Shower falls, bathtub falls, and bathroom falls, in general, are very common. Some floor tiles in showers get too slippery when wet, there simply is no appropriate non-slip strips/decals on the shower or bathtub, there is a lack of grab bars, or there is no mat outside of the shower/tub. In addition, poor design or even poor installation of shower doors or curtains can cause water to end up on the floor during showers/baths, posing a significant slip hazard. These falls can be very dangerous as victims are likely to hit their heads on hard surfaces, including on the edge of tubs, on the toilet, and obviously on the floor. These falls can lead to serious head injuries and traumatic brain injuries as well as neck injuries, back injuries, spinal cord injuries, and more. If you or a loved one were injured in a shower fall at a VRBO bathroom during a stay, you might have grounds to sue and recover compensation. Do not hestiate to contact our VRBO shower fall lawyers as soon as possible for more information about your right to sue.
VRBO Roof Collapse Lawsuits
Roof collapse incidents are rarer when compared to slip and falls and trip and falls, yet they can still happen – and can result in devastating injuries. These incidents occur when the roof is in disrepair, usually due to years of neglect from the property owner. Roof collapse incidents can significantly injure anyone directly below the roof (or nearby) when the collapse happens. These incidents can cause extensive head injuries, brain injuries, neck injuries, back injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, crushing injuries, impaling injuries, severed limbs, lacerations, etc. Unfortunately, these incidents can be fatal. If you or a loved one suffered a roof collapse incident on the premises of a VRBO, you could sue. You could have the right to file a wrongful death claim if your loved one died as a result of his or her injuries. For more information about your legal options, please reach out to our VRBO roof collapse lawsuit lawyers as soon as possible.
