Slip and Fall at Sonder Extended Stay Lawsuit Attorney

Slip and Fall at Sonder Extended Stay Lawsuit Attorney sue liability compensation incident

Did you slip and fall down at an extended stay rental that is managed by Sonder Holdings, Inc.? Was the accident caused by dangerous conditions on the property, such as:

  • Failure to remove ice and snow
  • Leaking pipes, toilets, and plumbing fixtures
  • Leaking appliances (fridges, freezers, air conditioners, etc.)
  • Uneven or missing flooring
  • Worn tiles or carpeting
  • Broken / poorly designed handrails
  • Loose wires and cords
  • Failure to clean or improper cleaning methods
  • Debris and other messes due to renovation / construction projects

Sonder Holdings, simply known as Sonder, is a property management firm that specializes in extended stay units, like apartment hotels. They lease and manage their own properties, which are mostly advertised on Airbnb. With over 9,000 properties in their portfolio, the company is a favorite among those who want the protection and convenience of housekeeping, maintenance, and other property management services.

While Sonder is not the actual owner of these rentals, they still have a duty of care to the tenants. This includes taking reasonable care to prevent hazardous conditions that can result in trip and fall and slip and fall accidents. If you fell down due to negligence by Sonder or the owner of an Airbnb rental, contact the legal team of DTLA Law Group.

Injuries from a Slip and Fall Incident

Please seek medical attention right away if you were injured in a slip and fall. Your accident may not seem that serious at first, but failure to see a doctor can put you at risk of complications from:

  • Dislocated joints
  • Deep cuts / open wounds
  • Neck or spinal cord injury
  • Herniated disc and other back injuries
  • Hip fracture
  • Knee injuries (patellar fracture, torn ACL or MCL)
  • Nerve damage
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Disfigurement (from broken facial bones, permanent scars, etc.)
  • Chronic pain

Waiting to see a doctor can also harm your chances of succeeding in a lawsuit against Sonder Holdings Inc. To ensure that you have a solid case for compensation, such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, and property damage, contact the slip and fall injury lawyers of DTLA.

Can I Sue Sonder for a Slip and Fall Injury?

Yes, you can sue Sonder for injuries from a slip and fall if they failed in their duty of care to you as someone that leased a property from them. Their exact duties depend on the terms of your contract, which you will want to go over with a premises liability lawsuit attorney.

One complication with these lawsuits is that liability may be shared by the leasing company and the owner of the property. In most cases, it’s the landlord that’s responsible for maintenance of the unit, so this is who you would sue for a slip and fall accident. But a landlord may hire a property management firm, like Sondra, to take care of certain issues they would normally handle.

In fact, the vast majority of owners for Sonder-listed properties are absentee landlords. They like the prospect of collecting a check from the renter, while putting the burden of managing the property on someone else. However, this doesn’t necessarily take away their liability for a slip and fall. For example, was the incident caused by the actions of the owner or their failure to take care of a problem they knew about?

As you can see, figuring out the right party to sue can be quite complicated when you are renting an extended stay room or apartment. One of our attorneys can help you determine who is liable for your injuries and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Slip and Fall Lawsuit Average Case Value

The average value of a slip and fall injury claim is $125,000 to $350,000 if your case is handled by an experienced attorney. However, the extent of your injuries, the total monetary losses involved, negligence by the property owner, and many other issues play a role in how much these lawsuits are worth. If, for example, you have relatively minor injuries, you can receive $15,000 to $60,000 from a fall injury accident claim. If, on the other hand, your injuries are severe (permanent disability, for example), the average settlement for a Sonder short-term rental slip and fall case is $2,500,000 to $5,000,000.

Length of Time to Settle a Slip and Fall Case

It takes 6 to 12 months to settle the vast majority of slip and fall lawsuits. However, case timelines may be longer depending on how badly you are injured and whether the management company is willing to admit liability. Even if they do, it can take months of back and forth negotiations to reach a favorable settlement. This is not counting the time to investigate your accident and ensure that you have reached maximum medical improvement for someone in your condition. That’s why it can sometimes take 2 or more years before the victim is compensated by Sonder, the property owner, and anyone else that’s responsible for the accident.

How Much Time Do I have to File a Slip and Fall Lawsuit?

You generally have 2 years to file a slip and fall lawsuit, starting from the incident date. Thus, it’s essential to initiate a claim as soon as possible with help from a slip and fall attorney. In some cases, the statute of limitations may be tolled, which will provide you with more time for a lawsuit. This can happen if you have injuries that are not diagnosed (“discovered) right away, like brain damage that is not apparent until years after the incident. In these situations, you have 1 year from the discovery of a slip and fall injury to file a lawsuit for monetary damages.
