About Bed Bugs and Resulting Harm
Bed bugs are tiny nocturnal insects that feed on human blood. They hide in beds, including bed frames, mattresses, and bedding; this gives them easy access to a food source. However, bed bugs can also in other furniture, including couches, sofas, chairs, and tables. Similarly, they can hide in clothing. Bed bugs essentially hide anywhere where they can find tiny crevices. As aforementioned, bed bugs are nocturnal; so, they come out at night to feed on anyone who is sleeping nearby. Their saliva contains a numbing agent, so victims do not feel the bites as they are happening. The bites can be itchy and swollen. It is possible for some victims to develop allergic reactions (to the bed bug saliva, specifically) as well as skin infections (if they scratch their bites). Some bed bug bites can lead to significant scarring. If bed bugs are introduced to your home, it can quickly become infested. Infestations can cause significant property damage as well as financial losses (due to both having to replace property and pay for extermination).
Bed Bugs Via Amazon Orders
Can you get bed bugs through your Amazon order? Whether you are purchasing clothing or furniture, your order might come with an unwanted surprise of bugs. Some of the products sold through Amazon are shipped by sellers to Amazon facilities, where they are packaged and sent on their way. Some products sit in Amazon warehouses for weeks or even months before they are sold. Unfortunately, some of these products can be infested with bed bugs, and the infestation can affect other products. Whether the product you purchased was infested or a few bed bugs crawled into your box after being placed near an infested item/box, it is possible for bed bugs to enter your home in an Amazon package. In general, it is unlikely to be exposed to bed bugs through Amazon packages, but it is important to note that it is not impossible. Ultimately, if you or your family find bed bugs in clothing, furniture, or anything else ordered online, you might have grounds to sue.
Can You Sue?

However, recent legislation made Amazon and other online retailers liable for all the products that they sell.

If you and your family were exposed to bed bugs which resulted in bites and/or an infestation in your home, you might have grounds to sue.
