Get Your Life Back on Track

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 and damages.

Who is Liable in a Bed Bug Infestation Case?

When it comes to apartment living, the renter and landlord has an obligation and duty to keep their property in a suitable condition for the health and wellness of occupants. This would include being free of bed bugs. Owners of the apartments, therefore, can be held liable when there is a bed bug infestation at a unit.

Proving liability for sure, however, will require a thorough investigation of the source of the bugs. Bed bugs have a way of “travelling” and property owners may argue that they did not originate at their property. When the apartment is furnished, liability is easier to prove but can still be accomplished with the assistance of a skilled bed bug attorney.

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.
  • Seek medical attention for your bites. Your safety and health is priority, and you may have difficulty recovering compensation without medical evidence.
  • Gather evidence of the bed bugs, such as photographs. If possible, preserve one or two bugs in a plastic bag. Additionally, take pictures of any bites that you sustained.
  • Keep track of all expenses related to the infestation. This include includes 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.
  • Report the bed bug infestation to the Department of Health so that it can execute a full investigation of the incident and your injuries.
  • Do not provide a statement to your insurance provider before you talk an attorney from Stern Law Group. Anything you say may be used to avoid giving you compensation.
