To learn more about how to move forward on a lawsuit, here are some basic steps to follow if you want to receive compensation for bed bug bites.

How to File a Bed Bug Lawsuit

As soon as you suspect you’ve suffered from a bed bug infestation due to the negligence of hotel staff or others, you need to collect sufficient evidence to file a lawsuit. This will entail taking photographs of bedsheets and other areas where visible evidence is present, such as small red spots or dead bed bugs. You also need to notify management of the infestation so a proper inspection of the room can be performed.

Any evidence supporting your lawsuit will help you successfully file one with the help of a bed bug bite lawyer. You can then consult with an attorney who can determine whether or not you have a bed bug case and proceed with a lawsuit.

How to Win a Bed Bug Lawsuit

Once you have filed a bed bug lawsuit with your attorney’s help, he or she will guide you through the process from there. It can take a lot of effort to prove negligence, but if you have the evidence to support your case, you’ll be able to more successfully receive full compensation for the damages.

Victims of bed bug bites can receive bed bug compensation for both monetary and non-monetary damages. Monetary damages may include medical bills for treatment, lost wages, replacement of furniture, extermination costs, and others. Non-monetary damages include pain and suffering as a result of the infestation, such as embarrassment and stress from itching, and some even experience a fear of going to sleep as a result of their bites.

Your attorney will try to get all of the types of compensation you and your family deserve, whether for monetary and non-monetary damages. However, keep in mind that the process may require some time before you see the desired settlement.

How Long Does a Bed Bug Lawsuit Take?

Like any other lawsuit, there isn’t a specific amount of time that a bed bug lawsuit will take. There are many factors that will affect the proceedings and settlements in a bed bug lawsuit, which will ultimately influence the length of time of the lawsuit. You attorney will work with you to make sure the outcome of the lawsuit is in your favor, which may mean that the lawsuit will require a longer timespan.

While you may want the lawsuit to take as little time as possible and to receive full compensation when you need it, the process may require some patience to get the outcome you want.

    I’ve requested o.j.iwners info and was told he was in India and are unaware when he’ll be back.

  9. I am NOT, neither was my husband a law suits person. But, trying sooo many things for years after staying at the Crowne Plaza Houston River Oaks – 2712 SW Freeway in Houston, TX 77098
    I contracted some kind of parasite skin disease that no one so far has been able to cure or diagnose, making my life miserable and pretty much unable to have a normal social and family life. My husband, an MD Anderson patient also while staying there came down with an infection and hospitalized for days. On the internet I read someone having problems with the same room: 801. Mine started one morning trying to get to the Hospital MD Anderson some bug bit me and I couldn’t stop the bleeding, therefore I put some tissues for the blood and got down to the Lobby to see if they could supply me with a band aid, the woman who checked us in Jackie and the young lady Concierge (don’t recall her name), took me to an empty office to look at the problem and apply the band aid, the Concierge asked Jackie if she knew of that particular room having previous problems, but I didn’t hear or saw a reply since my back was facing the wall. At that time my major and only concern was my husband’s illness, nothing else had priority until he passed away; little I knew the hell I was to go through for years.. but NO MORE! I’m determined to sue the heck out of them for the misery that I have gone through and continue to. My body is full of scars, dark spots and the itching 24/7 is hell on earth. After these women waited on me that morning, about the next day or the day after on my way out to catch the shuttle to the Hospital I saw a good number of Terminix employees having a meeting in a room , visible from the hallway to the front door. I’m sure all these records would be easy to collect; I have one of the Hotel’s statements. I believe we stayed there 2-3 times, whenever we couldn’t get a room at the Rotary House, he was treated for almost 3 years.
    I probably should have decided to take this step a long time before but, after years of Drs. creams, ointments, baths, etc. I can’t stand it anymore and find myself mad as hell.
    My email is phone 251-609-2977 cell,
    I would appreciate a reply with your opinion. Thanks! M. Adkins

  10. I live in Evansville, Indiana. The house I rented for 14 months was infested with bedbugs. I suffer from PTSD and I had to throw all my furniture away. The baby bedbugs were inside my ears. I was humiliated and embarrassed. I became withdrawn. I called and wrote letters to my landlord pleading for him to exterminate or relocate me. I have pics of bites and bedbugs everywhere in house. I found out that other tenants and apts were infested too. Fetter Properties evicted me. Currently I’m being sued for $4,000 due to the house not rented out for 6 months. I want to sue for my suffering and loss of property. Please help me. Veronica

I believe that the mattress and boxspring set that I purchased from a retail establishment on Springfield Avenue in Newark New Jersey has been previously used and put inside of a new cover and it’s sold as new.
