Bakersfield Bed Bug Lawyer

Bed bug infestations have been increasing in numbers in Bakersfield and throughout California. Although many people think bed bugs are a minor nuisance, they are actually much more serious than that. If you have been injured by bed bugs, you may be able to take legal action against the negligent party that caused the infestation. The steps that you take after being injured by bed bugs are very important, though, and they can either greatly help or hinder your case. Below, our Bakersfield bed bug lawyer explains more.

What Damages are Available in Bed Bug Lawsuits?

Most people are aware that bed bugs are parasites that feed on warm-blooded hosts such as humans and animals. As such, bed bug bites are well-known, and many people believe these are the injuries caused by the pests. This is not true. Bed bugs can result in many injuries, including:

  • Symptoms from the bites, including skin and internal allergic reactions,
  • The destruction of personal belongings such as bedding, mattresses, and clothing,
  • The cost of pest control and exterminating the pests,
  • The cost of hotel or other rental accommodations if the infestation forces you out of your home,
  • Loss of sleep, and
  • Increased stress levels.

The above are just a few of the most common types of damages available in bed bug lawsuits. A Bakersfield bed bug attorney can review your case and accurately evaluate all of your losses.

What to Do After a Bed Bug Infestation

Proving that you have a right to damages is not easy in any personal injury claim, and those involving bed bugs have their own set of unique challenges. To help you prove your case and obtain the fair settlement you deserve, it is important to take the appropriate steps. These are as follows:

  • Take detailed notes of any report ever made to the property owner or management regarding the infestation and any steps they will take to correct it. Remember to ask for the name and position of anyone you speak to.
  • Contact the Kern County Public Health Department to determine if any bed bug complaints have been filed in the location of the infestation.
  • Take detailed notes about the infestation, including the date you discovered it, the injuries you suffered, and the steps you have taken to reduce, eliminate, or prevent infestations.
  • Seek medical attention for your injuries. Many people fail to do this because they do not believe bed bug bites require medical treatment. However, being examined by a doctor will document your injuries.
  • Find temporary accommodations if bed bugs are in your home.
  • Contact a bed bug attorney in Bakersfield to learn more about your rights.
