Eastern Tennessee including Knoxville, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, Townsend and the surrounding areas offer some of the most beautiful mountain resorts and retreats in the United States. People come from all over the country to enjoy the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and area attractions. From romantic getaways and family vacations to outdoor adventure, sporting events, concerts, amusement parks, and arts and crafts festivals, eastern Tennessee offers a little bit of everything wrapped up in a beautiful package.
Many couples and families choose to stay in one of the many cabins for rent in eastern Tennessee. Cabins offer a wonderful way to be in a home away from home. Many of the rental cabins include amenities such as gas grills, fire places, Jacuzzis, saunas, pool tables, foosball, dart boards, indoor and outdoor pools, and decks with swings that overlook the mountains. Owners understand to attract guests they must offer rental cabins that have great amenities and lavish decorations. However, rental cabins and the property they are on must be safe for use. Cabin owners can be held liable if a guest is injured while renting the property.

Being Injured In A Rental Cabin Can Be A Traumatic Event
When you rent a cabin, you have the right to expect the cabin to be safe for use. A rental cabin accident can quickly turn into a nightmare as you deal with the physical pain from your injury and you face costly medical treatments and time away from work. Who is responsible for your bills?
Holding Someone Accountable For Your Injuries
If you can prove that an unsafe condition existed on the property and you were injured because of the unsafe condition, you are entitled to be compensated. The liable party could be the owner of the cabin, the management company renting the cabin, a contractor, designer, builder, or other party. Examples of reasons why you would file a premises liability lawsuit for a rental cabin accident include but are not limited to:
- The owner or management company failed to maintain the property and/or make necessary repairs causing an unsafe condition.
- The rental cabin was designed poorly creating an unsafe condition that led to an accident.
- The rental cabin was constructed with sub-standard materials and/or faulty workmanship.
- The rental cabin was furnished with unsafe equipment and/or materials.
In order to receive damages from the liable party, you must prove that the owner or other party caused the dangerous condition to happen or the owner or other party knew or should have known the dangerous condition existed but did nothing to correct the problem. You must also prove that your injury was a direct result of the dangerous condition and that you suffered damages as a result of the injury.
Because premises liability lawsuits are often complex and require comprehensive investigations to identify the responsible parties and to prove fault, it is in your best interest to consult with an experienced Knoxville premises liability attorney.

What Damages Are Available In A Rental Cabin Accident Lawsuit?
