Common Injuries & Side Effects
Bed bugs are small, parasitic insects that feed on human blood. The threats
posed by bed bugs can be incredibly serious for victims. There are a number
of adverse effects that victims can experience, some of which include:
- Severe skin rashes
- Allergic reactions
- Mental anguish and psychological damage
- Permanent scarring
Apart from allergic reactions and damage to the skin, injuries can also
manifest in the form of psychological distress. Many victims report long-term
and serious cases of insomnia, fear, anxiety, and other forms of mental
and emotional anguish. In addition to medical attention and treatment,
these damages can require many victims to seek psychological therapy and
other forms of counseling that can result in costly medical bills. In
order to hold a premises owner liable for failing to provide safe and
healthy conditions, our firm can assist you with filing a
personal injury claim, which can also allow you to obtain compensation for your injuries
What to Do After a Bed Bug Infestation or Attack
If you suspect a bedbug attack or infestation,
act now. In order to take legal action for your injuries, suffering, and other
damages, you must provide certain evidence to create a strong case.
- First, report the incident to your employer or manager and request a report
of the attack and bites. Obtain a copy of the report for your personal records.

one or two bugs in a plastic bag. Additionally, take pictures of any bites
that you sustained.

medical costs, prescriptions, doctors' bills, and any property damage.
- Speak with an attorney. A skilled lawyer can help you understand your legal
rights and options, so you can develop a plan to get compensated.
