Palm Springs Bed Bug Lawyer

There have been an increasing number of bed bug infestations in Palm Springs, and throughout Southern California, for many years. Palm Springs has more than 45,000 residents and over 12 million people visit every year. With so many people in the city, the number of bed bug infestations is not surprising. These insects need warm-blooded hosts to feed and so, they seek out areas with large populations of people. Once these insects make their way into a hotel, home, trains, and even airplanes, they become a nuisance for anyone they come across. If another person was negligent and you sustained bed bug injuries, you may have a right to file a claim for monetary compensation. There are a number of challenges you may face when filing a claim, though and there are many elements of your case you must prove. Our Palm Springs bed bug lawyer knows how to obtain the fair settlement you are entitled to.

Determining Liability for Bed Bug Infestations

Falling under the area of personal injury law, bed bug lawsuits require you to show who was at fault, or liable, for the infestation that caused you harm. If you brought bed bugs home after staying at a Palm Springs hotel, you may be able to hold the hotel owner liable. Business owners have a legal duty to ensure their premises are safe, and this includes preventing infestations and eliminating them when they occur.

Likewise, you may be able to file a claim for damages against your landlord if your rental property contains bed bugs. These claims are a bit more challenging to prove than filing a claim against the owner of a business. You must show that the infestation existed before you took occupancy and generally speaking, this means discovering the problem shortly after moving in. Waiting too long may result in the landlord claiming that you brought the insects onto the property and therefore, you are not liable.

The Time Limit on Bed Bug Claims

As with the majority of personal injury claims in Palm Springs, bed bug claims are governed by a statute of limitations, or a time limit. Under California law, the statute of limitations on bed bug lawsuits is two years from the day the infestation was discovered. It is critical that you file your claim before the statute of limitations expires. If you do not, you will likely forfeit your right to claim any damages at all.

While there are certain exceptions to the statute of limitations, they are limited. Our Palm Springs bed bug attorney can review the facts of your case and determine if there is still time to file your claim.
