A breach of duty doesn’t have to be a specific action. It could easily mean that the defendant did not do anything. For example, if the homeowner or renter does not make any effort to warn guests about dangers in the home or make any effort to fix them, then this is a breach of duty.
Slip and fall cases are very common under the breach of duty responsibilities, as even an unclean floor or crack in the pavement can cause a victim to become incredibly injured.
In order to win a breach of duty case, you must prove that the homeowner had existing knowledge of the danger and did not take any steps to fix it. The court requires the plaintiff to show that the controlling party had knowledge of the danger.
As a guest you will never be able to sue the hosts for a spill that they don’t even know is there. That is why it is necessary to get insurance for your home. After a death on a tire swing in Texas, Nick Papas, an AirBnB spokesperson responded, “We are extremely confident in the finances underlying our program,” he said in an emailed statement. “When we were looking to expand it, we had multiple competitive bids from different insurers. The numbers show how low the risk factors are, and they’re eager to work with us.”
