Pasadena Bed Bug Lawyer

Bed bugs have become more prevalent across the United States in recent years. While many think these bugs are just pests, they can cause serious injuries to those impacted by them. The first step to recovery is knowing your legal rights. Sadly, people injured by bed bugs are sometimes taken advantage of by property owners and the insurance companies who cover them. Injured individuals are told they are to blame for an infestation, and they are often lied to by property owners. If you have been bitten by bed bugs, you may be able to file a lawsuit for your injuries. Our Pasadena bed bug lawyer explains more below.

Suing a Hotel for Bed Bugs

It is absolutely possible to sue a hotel for bed bugs. Motel and hotel owners want to make the biggest profit possible. If they cannot rent out a room, they lose money. Due to this, it is in their best interests to conceal the existence of bed bugs on the property. In some cases, they may even tell cleaning staff to stay quiet about the presence of bed bugs on the property. They do this so they can still rent the room, even though it is not habitable. This only results in more people becoming injured by bed bug bites.

Suing a Landlord for Bed Bugs

Although it is sometimes possible to sue a landlord for a bed bug problem, it is also more challenging. Like hotel operators, landlords have a duty to inform any tenant of a bed bug infestation. When landlords are notified of a bed bug problem, they also have a legal duty to correct it and eliminate it from the property.

Landlords sometimes refuse to do this and instead blame the tenant for the problem. When a landlord does not eradicate a bed bug infestation in one unit, it can quickly spread to others. In these cases, landlords can be held liable for paying damages to all injured parties.

The Statute of Limitations on Bed Bug Lawsuits in Pasadena

As with all personal injury claims, you only have a limited amount of time to file a bed bug lawsuit. In Pasadena, as throughout the rest of California, you have only two years to file your lawsuit. This means you must file your lawsuit on the day you discovered or the day you should have reasonably discovered the infestation.

Two years sounds like a lot of time to many people, but it is not in bed bug cases. If you do not file your claim before the statute of limitations expires, you will not be able to claim any compensation at all. It is for this reason you should always speak to a Pasadena bed bug attorney about your injuries as soon as possible.
