contacting DLG’s experienced attorneys. We’ll fight to recover the maximum financial compensation you deserve.

Are You A Victim of Airbnb/Vrbo Rape or Sexual Assault?

In recent years, vacation rental properties like Airbnb and Vrbo have captured a larger market share than some of the most well-known hotel franchises. Business Insider reported that Airbnb was worth more than the three largest hotel chains combined when the company’s IPO first launched at the end of 2020. Now that the pandemic is beginning to subside and more people are traveling, Airbnb and Vrbo stand to gain an even greater share of the travel accommodation market.

But with these major companies having established their business models based on the trust of complete strangers, is using Airbnb or Vrbo actually as safe as booking a room at a Holiday Inn or Marriott? With no specific user guidelines regarding how many keys to a property can be made (or in existence), Airbnb and Vrbo put guests in unnecessary danger.

A recent Bloomberg report confirmed that an Australian tourist was raped at a New York City Airbnb property on New Year’s Eve in 2015. And that particular crime was not an isolated incident. It turns out that Airbnb handles thousands of sexual assault allegations every year, costing the company a reported $50 million in settlements.

What can you do if you’ve been the victim of a sexual assault or other type of misconduct (whether physical or sexual in nature) at an Airbnb or Vrbo property? The experienced attorneys at Dordulian Law Group (DLG) are led by former sex crimes prosecutor and Deputy District Attorney for Los Angeles County, Sam Dordulian. Dordulian and his Sex Crimes Division experts can help you file a civil lawsuit against Airbnb or Vrbo to recover the financial compensation you deserve.

In the New York City case referenced above, the survivor recovered $7 million. And many additional survivors will continue to secure justice every year until Airbnb and Vrbo change their policies and increase safety measures to better protect guests.

Below we’ll review everything you need to know about filing an Airbnb or Vrbo sexual assault lawsuit. We’ll also look at what sort of compensation you can expect to receive after filing a claim, and review how to find an experienced and dedicated Airbnb/Vrbo sexual assault lawyer to ensure you win your case and secure a maximum financial damages award.

Our Sexual Assault Justice Experts are here to help survivors secure justice. Contact our top-rated attorneys online or by phone for a free consultation today.

How Can I File a Sexual Assault Lawsuit Against Airbnb/Vrbo?

How Can I File a Sexual Assault Lawsuit Against Airbnb/Vrbo?

Coming forward to report a sexual assault claim can be a harrowing experience. As a sex crimes prosecutor, DLG’s Sam Dordulian represented countless sexual assault survivors against some of the most heinous predators imaginable. During that time, Dordulian came to understand first-hand how difficult the process of coming forward in pursuit of justice against a sexual perpetrator can be for survivors.

When you’re ready to take that step, the skilled and dedicated professionals in DLG’s Sex Crimes Division are here to listen. When you contact DLG with your Airbnb or Vrbo sexual assault claim, we will:

  • Listen to the facts of your case (we believe survivors)
  • Launch a thorough investigation
  • Help you get acclimated with all the members of our SAJE Team (Sexual Assault justice Experts) including an in-house clinical therapist
  • Develop a winning legal strategy based on decades of experience and proven results
  • File your Airbnb/Vrbo civil claim in a timely manner in accordance with the statute of limitations

Filing a civil lawsuit against Airbnb or Vrbo can be the best means of recovering financial compensation for various losses, such as emotional trauma or expenses from psychological counseling. After a traumatic experience like sexual assault, the survivor deserves swift justice and should never be responsible for such losses. The experienced Sex Crimes Division attorneys at DLG are well-versed and skilled in Airbnb/Vrbo sexual assault lawsuits, and we will fight to recover the maximum financial damages award you deserve.

What Types of Damages Can I Recover From an Airbnb/Vrbo Sexual Assault Lawsuit?

Filing an Airbnb or Vrbo sexual assault lawsuit is a means of pursuing economic and non-economic damages that are a reflection of the losses the survivor has endured as a result of the sexual predator’s criminal behavior.

Some examples of economic damages that may be recoverable after an Airbnb or Vrbo sexual assault include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Psychological counseling or therapy expenses
  • Rehabilitation
  • Travel or relocation expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost or reduced earning capacity

Some examples of non-economic damages that may be recoverable after an Airbnb or Vrbo sexual assault include:

  • Reduced quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma
  • Psychological harm

While economic damages are tangible and therefore easier to demonstrate under the law, non-economic damages are open to interpretation and can be more difficult to prove in an Airbnb or Vrbo sexual assault claim. That is one of the many reasons why securing experienced, qualified, and proven legal representation is so critical when filing your Airbnb/Vrbo sexual assault lawsuit.

Not having a seasoned attorney handle your Airbnb/Vrbo sex crime claim could result in a substantially lower financial settlement or verdict. If your attorney is not able to properly demonstrate intangible non-economic damages such as pain and suffering or emotional trauma, the ultimate financial compensation you receive could be dramatically reduced.

DLG’s founder and president successfully obtained over 100 jury trial victories as a sex crimes prosecutor and Deputy District Attorney for Los Angeles County. That’s a level of experience that simply can’t be found at other firms, and it can be the difference between a $10,000 settlement and a multi-million dollar settlement.

By securing the experienced and dedicated team of legal professionals at DLG, you can rest easy knowing that your Airbnb/Vrbo sexual assault claim is in good hands, and we will never accept anything less than a maximum financial damages award for your case.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Filing an Airbnb/Vrbo Sexual Assault Lawsuit?

What is the Statute of Limitations for Filing an Airbnb/Vrbo Sexual Assault Lawsuit?

The statute of limitations for sexual assault claims can vary depending on where the crime occurred. Different states have different statutes of limitations for various sex crimes. If you live in California, the civil statute of limitations on adult sex crimes occurring after 2019 is 10 years. For crimes occurring before 2019, the statute of limitations is effectively two years.

For childhood sexual assault crimes, AB 218 allows all survivors to come forward under the limited three-year lookback window option that temporarily tolls (pauses) the statute of limitations. For additional information on AB 218, please visit our in-depth blog.

It is important to note, however, that the Bloomberg report indicates Airbnb makes great efforts to conceal incidents of rape and sexual misconduct on their properties from the public, and the company is therefore more inclined to settle most cases regardless of the specific statute of limitations. If your Airbnb or Vrbo sexual assault occurred before 2019, you may still have a valid claim and be able to recover maximum financial compensation.

Many sexual assault survivors are under the mistaken impression that they do not have a claim because of the statute of limitations. But before you make a final decision, contact DLG for a free consultation. We’ll listen to the facts of your case and provide expert guidance for the best course of action.

For Airbnb or Vrbo sexual assaults occurring outside of California, the statute of limitations would depend on the state in which the crime occurred. By contacting DLG, we can assess the facts of your case and help you determine the definite statute of limitations for your specific claim. Additionally, if your Airbnb or Vrbo sexual assault occurred outside of California, we can help refer you to a qualified and experienced attorney in the state where the crime took place, ensuring your claim is handled properly.
