Riverside Bed Bug Lawyer

Anyone who lives with bed bugs knows that they are more than just an inconvenience. Bed bugs can quickly spread throughout a space, and after they bite someone, they leave a red, itchy bump behind. Some people even find it difficult to sleep for fear that they will be bitten throughout the night. Anyone who rents an apartment, stays at a hotel, or even uses public transportation is at risk of bringing bed bugs back home. Bed bugs are known hitchhikers, and once they make their way inside a space, they are extremely difficult to get rid of. If you are dealing with a bed bug infestation and you believe another person is at fault, you may be able to file a claim for damages. Our Riverside bed bug lawyer can advise on your case and help you obtain the full compensation you are entitled to.

Determining Liability for a Bed Bug Infestation

In the majority of bed bug infestation cases, property and business owners are liable. These parties all have a legal duty to ensure their premises are clean and safe for anyone who enters the property. Due to this, the most common liable parties include:

  • Landlords
  • Hotel and motel owners
  • Owners of Airbnb properties
  • Government entities that oversee public transportation systems
  • Owners and operators of private planes and trains

Airbnb rentals are becoming more popular today. It is important to understand that if you stayed in an Airbnb in Riverside and are now dealing with a bed bug infestation. As a result, you must file a claim against the property owner and not the company. It is also not uncommon for a landlord to include a bed bug waiver in rental agreements, stating that they are not liable for bed bug infestations. Under the California Civil Code, however, landlords must provide rental units that are habitable, and that will not harm tenants. This generally renders bed bug waivers void and unenforceable. If you are unsure whether you can pursue legal action as a renter, reach out to a bed bug attorney in Riverside right away.

Compensation Available in Bed Bug Lawsuits

Bed bugs cause a great deal of harm. Bites can become infected, and for people who are allergic to bed bugs, they can be especially harmful. People may have to miss work due to their injuries or to get rid of the infestation. A personal injury lawsuit can help you recover any loss you suffered as a result of a bed bug infestation caused by someone else. The most common damages awarded in bed bug lawsuits include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Counseling expenses, if the infestation caused emotional trauma
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damages
  • Exterminator expenses and other costs associated with eliminating the infestation
