Ventura Bed Bug Lawyer

Bed bugs are not only an inconvenience, but they are a serious problem that causes real harm. Bed bugs need a warm-blooded host to survive. Using their long beaks, they pierce the skin of an animal or person and draw blood. After they have bitten, they leave behind small, itchy bumps that are red in appearance. While bed bug bites may seem like a minor inconvenience, they can cause real harm. This is especially true for people who have allergies or highly sensitive skin. Even when a person does not suffer from these conditions, the insects can cause some individuals to develop post-traumatic stress disorder. Even when a home does not initially contain bed bugs, they can easily come inside. A bed bug infestation can develop after a person travels or when rental or used items are brought into a space. Below, our Ventura bed bug lawyer outlines the three parties that are most commonly liable in these cases and how you can obtain maximum damages for your injuries.

When Are Hotel Owners and Managers Liable for Bed Bugs?

Of all the places for a bed bug infestation to occur, hotels are some of the most common. It is always recommended that people staying in a hotel first inspect it for bed bugs and, if a problem is found, to report it to management. After reporting the issue, management may upgrade your room, and they may even offer a small amount of compensation. They do this, hoping that you will not file a lawsuit against them.

Many people are grateful that they received anything at all, but the amount of compensation they receive is not enough to fully cover the cost of the harm they suffered. Additionally, there is always a good chance that the bed bugs crawled into luggage, meaning people bring the pests back home with them.

When Are Landlords Liable for Bed Bugs?

Under state law, landlords must maintain their rental properties, including taking the necessary steps to prevent an infestation from developing. Landlords must also fully disclose the presence of bed bugs to any potential tenant and ensure the problem is eliminated before anyone moves in. Sadly, many landlords do not comply with the law, and tenants suffer harm as a result. Our Ventura bed bug attorney can help you prove your landlord’s liability so you receive the full settlement you deserve.

Retail Outlets

When a person purchases or rents furniture from a retailer and it is infested with bed bugs, the problem will quickly spread throughout the home. Business owners have a legal responsibility to ensure the products they are renting or selling are safe and that people are not harmed by them. Business owners can sometimes be careless, though, and when they are, they can be held liable for their negligence.
