About Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are tiny insects that feed on human blood. Because they need a constant food source, bed bugs are common in hotels, motels, and apartments; they are found on beds, mattresses, sofas, couches, and in a variety of other pieces of furniture with easy access to a quick meal. Because bed bugs reproduce so quickly, even just a few bed bugs could cause an infestation in a matter of weeks. Bed bugs are, unfortunately, becoming more and more common. People all over the country are suffering as a result of bed bug infestations.
The Negative Effects of Bed Bugs
How could you be affected by bed bugs? Many people believe that the only harm caused by bed bugs is their bites. Without a doubt, bed bugs bite unsuspecting victims; however, victims could be affected in many other ways in addition to bites.
The negative effects of bed bugs are listed below:
- Itchy and uncomfortable bed bug bites
- Allergic reactions to bites
- Emotional and mental harm
- Loss of personal property
- Extermination expenses
If you suffered any type of harm after being exposed to bed bugs through no fault of your own, you might have the right to pursue a bed bug lawsuit in Wyoming. To discuss your claim with bed bug attorneys in Cheyenne, Casper, Rock Springs, Gillette, Laramie, and Yellow Stone, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance at your earliest convenience.
Bed Bugs in Hotels
Some of the most common places to find bed bugs are hotels and motels. With constant sources of food, bed bugs thrive in these environments. As mentioned above, bed bugs can be found in beds, mattresses, bedding, pillows, and furniture. Bed bugs can even hitch a ride on your clothes if you briefly sit on a couch in a hotel lobby. When you book a hotel or a motel, do you worry about being affected by bed bugs? Many people simply scan their room to ensure that the hotel or motel room has an acceptable level of cleanliness; however, bed bugs are only visible upon a thorough check of a room. Regardless of where you stay, you could be exposed to bed bugs. Some of the hotels and motels that could be infested with bed bugs include the following: Courtyard Marriott, Days Inn, Fairfield Inn, Hilton Hotel, Holiday Inn, Marriott Hotel, Motel 6, Quality Inn, Red Roof Inn, Super 8, Best Westerns, Choice Hotels, Extended Stay America, Hampton Inn, La Quinta Inn, MGM, Howard Johnson, and Red Lion Hotel, for example. You could even be affected in an Airbnb.
Can you sue a hotel in Wyoming for bed bugs? You can sue a motel or hotel for bed bugs in Wyoming as long as you can prove that the hotel or motel management is liable for the harm that you suffered. In general, there are no strict laws regarding bed bug infestations; however, common law applies. Under common law, hotel and motel owners/management have a duty to keep their guests safe and reduce the risk of harm in any way possible. Unfortunately, liability for bed bug incidents can be tricky to prove-especially since liability depends on whether or not the hotel or motel owner/manager was aware of the infestation. If hotel staff is aware of an infestation, they must act accordingly to prevent guests from being harmed (i.e. they must clean, disinfect, and exterminate the room, for example). If hotel staff is unaware, they cannot act accordingly; therefore, they cannot be liable. When hotel staff is aware of the infestation but fails to act promptly, the hotel could be liable.
For more information about suing a hotel or a motel, you must discuss your claim with a bed bug lawsuit attorney in Wyoming for bed bug bites in a hotel. If you are in need of a lawyer for bed bugs in Yellow Stone, Cheyenne, Laramie, Casper, Gillette, Rock Springs, do not hesitate to contact Bed Bug Legal Group at your earliest convenience.

Bed bugs are not exclusive to hotels and motels; bed bugs can make their way into your home-especially if you live in an apartment building. In general, tenants can sue their landlords as long if they were affected by a bed bug infestation through no fault of their own. For instance, if you unknowingly moved into an apartment building with a bed bug infestation, the tenant could be liable for the harm that you suffered. Likewise, if the landlord was aware of the bed bug problem but failed to take appropriate action to address the infestation, the landlord could also be liable.
