Fremont Bed Bug Lawyer

In Fremont and throughout California, the number of bed bug infestations has been increasing in recent years. While many people think these insects are only a minor inconvenience, bed bugs pose a much more serious problem. If you have been hurt by bed bugs, it may be possible to file a claim against the negligent party that caused the problem. It is very important that you take the appropriate steps, though. A failure to take these steps can greatly hurt your case. Below, our Fremont bed bug lawyer explains further.

What Compensation is Available in Bed Bug Claims?

Most people know that bed bugs are parasites that survive by feeding on warm-blooded hosts such as animals and humans. Due to this, many people know that bed bugs leave red, itchy bites behind after they feed. The misconception is that these are the only injuries caused by the pests when, in fact, that is not true. Bed bugs cause many injuries, and they are as follows:

  • Increased stress levels
  • Loss of sleep
  • The cost of rental accommodations or hotel expenses if you are forced out of your home while the infestation is being treated
  • The cost of exterminating the pests and other pest control measures, such as preventative measures
  • The destruction of personal belongings, including clothing, mattresses, and bedding
  • Symptoms caused by the bites, such as internal and skin allergic reactions

You can claim damages, or compensation, for any loss you have suffered due to a bed bug infestation. Our Fremont bed bug attorney can review the facts of your case and accurately value your claim so you obtain the full settlement you deserve.

Steps to Take After a Bed Bug Infestation

Proving any personal injury case is not easy, and this holds true for bed bug infestations, as well. There are certain steps to take that can help you prove your case and ensure you receive the full damages you are entitled to. The steps to take are as follows:

  • Make note of any report you made to management or the property owner regarding the bed bug infestation. Also, note any steps they take to fix the problem. Remember to ask anyone you speak to for their name and employment position.
  • Contact the Alameda County Public Health Department and inquire about any bed bug infestations that have been reported in the same location.
  • Make notes about the infestation, including the date it was discovered, the injuries you sustained, and the steps you have taken to eliminate, reduce, and prevent further infestations.
  • See a doctor to document the bed bug bites and to make sure they do not become worse or infected.
  • If bed bugs are in your home, find temporary accommodations.
