What Happens If An AirBnB Guest Is Injured In Your Home?

What Happens If An AirBnB Guest Is Injured In Your Home?Florida is one of the great tourist states of the country, and with good reason. As if the tropical weather and sunny days weren’t enough attraction, cities like Orlando and Miami provide a lot of tourist destinations for the many travelers that come to our state looking for a good time.

Thanks to new innovations in the market, there are special services such as “Airbnb,” that allow homeowners to turn their residences into “hotels” or “guesthouses” for people coming to our state. It’s an easy and lucrative way for an enterprising homeowner to let their property investment make even more money. However, where some people view this enterprise as allowing a stranger into their home, and see that as the biggest risk, there’s another legal hazard that you need to consider; a stranger may be harmed in your home, and you may be responsible.

Legal Protection

Many people who don’t look into the legalities of Airbnb don’t realize that they are “on the hook” and responsible for many things when they allow a guest into their home, and this includes being responsible for certain... ...read full post

If Your Child Is Traumatized You Can Fight Back

If Your Child Is Traumatized You Can Fight BackMost of the time when we talk about court cases and getting compensation, we’re referring to injuries. In many ways, an injury is a much more simple and straightforward situation for a court to resolve. Injuries—at least at the time—are visible. They can be documented with photos, medical records, and testimony from doctors. In most cases, if an injury is life-long, permanent and crippling, such as the loss of a limb, an experienced personal injury lawyer can make a case for proper financial compensation if someone else’s carelessness is responsible.

But not everything that debilitates a person is a visible, physical injury. In criminal acts, it’s often understood that the ramifications of a rape case, for example, can go far beyond just any physical damage. Emotional damage can potentially be life-long and just as crippling—if not more so—than a physical injury. The same is especially true when it comes to the delicate emotional condition of children.

Children are only just learning about the world around them. That means that any new experience can be a formative one, that will have a lifelong influence on... ...read full post

Safety At Home: Your Responsibilities As A Resident

Safety At Home: Your Responsibilities As A ResidentOne of the things we take for granted when we return home after a hard day of work is that we’re in a place of safety and control. This, after all, is our home. It’s where we eat, sleep, live and be with people we care about when we’re not working, it’s our place.
