About Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are small insects that make themselves at home wherever they could find a source of food and a place to hide. Bed bugs hide in beds, mattresses, wooden furniture, carpets, rugs, sofas, couches, and other areas. Common to hotels, motels, and apartment buildings, bed bugs feed on human blood during the night while their victims are sleeping. Unfortunately, bed bugs with a constant food source will thrive and reproduce rapidly, leading to extreme infestations. Although many people can only suffer minor discomfort after being exposed to an infestation in a motel, a hotel, or an apartment, some people’s lives are turned upside down after being exposed to bed bugs. For such people, it is highly important to receive the medical and legal help necessary to recover mentally, physically, and financially.
The Effects of Bed Bugs
The most well-known effect of being exposed to bed bugs comes as bites. Unsuspecting victims are often bitten while they are sleeping. Bed bug bites are often itchy and uncomfortable. When scratched, the skin could break and leave victims susceptible to skin infections. Some victims have allergic reactions to the substances that enter their body while bed bugs are feasting on their blood. Both allergic reactions and skin infections could take a toll on victims’ mental and emotional well-being in addition to physical wellbeing.
Because of this, bed bug bites could result in expensive medical bills (for both physical treatment and mental/emotional treatment) as well as a loss of income due to the time victims often have to take off of work. Bed bug infestations often require that the affected parties throw out a number of personal possessions including clothes and furniture, for example.
Overall, exposure to bed bugs can result in a variety of effects. You might be eligible to receive compensation based on how you were affected by a bed bug infestation in an apartment complex, a hotel, or a motel. If you would like to discuss your claim with our bed bug attorneys in Providence, Warwick, Cranston, East Providence, and Pawtucket, you must contact the attorneys at Bed Bug Legal Group as soon as possible.

Bed bugs in Your Apartment Unit
Unfortunately, bed bug infestations are just as common in apartment buildings as they are in hotels and motels. You might pride yourself in keeping your rented apartment unit clean at all times, but even the cleanest people can find bed bugs in their homes. Bed bugs can hide and survive in unperceivable crevices for months. You might have moved into an apartment that appeared to be free of infestations; however, you and your family might experience bites many weeks after moving in. Bed bugs could also enter your apartment from neighboring units. Regardless of whether the bed bugs were already in the apartment when you moved in or they entered your apartment from another infested unit, your landlord might be responsible (as long as you did not start the infestation). Can you sue your landlord for bed bugs? Yes, you can sue your landlord for bed bugs; however, only under certain circumstances. For more information about your right to file a claim against your landlord, contact a bed bug lawyer for apartment bed bug infestations in Rhode Island today.
Liability for Bed Bugs and Bed Bug Bites
Were you exposed to a bed bug infestation in an apartment building, a motel, or a hotel? You might have even been exposed to a bed bug infestation during your stay at an Airbnb rental. Can I file a lawsuit for bed bug bites? Yes, you can file a lawsuit for bed bug bites. However, liability for bed bugs in a hotel, motel, or apartment building depends on whether the owner or landlord was aware of the problem and failed to take action. For instance, if past hotel guests reported bed bugs but the hotel owners did not inspect and fumigate the room and other guests suffered injuries, the hotel owner will face liability. Likewise, if your landlord knew of the infestation and failed to inform you before you moved in or failed to address the infestation, your landlord will face liability.
