Factors of Bed Bug Settlements

One of the key factors that can influence your settlement amount is the size of the infestation and the extent of bites. When an infestation is large in a new apartment, hotel or rental, then the property owners should have had prior knowledge of the problem and taken appropriate action to treat it.  Generally, the more bites that are sustained, and the more bed bugs that are found, the more a case may be worth.

You can often tell how big an infestation is by the extent of the bites sustained. With numerous bites sustained over a short period of time, the infestation may be large and probably been a problem for an extended period of time.

When an infestation has been present for some time, the owners likely know that the bugs are there due to prior complaints. Failure to acknowledge the presence of bed bugs and treat appropriately is negligence on the part of the owners. Negligence of this nature can increase the amount of your settlement.

Medical Expenses

Your pain and suffering from bed bug bites can go beyond the bites themselves. Blemishes and hyperpigmentation from the bites can last for more than a year. Occasionally, there is scarring that disfigures. Allergic reactions, itching, insomnia and secondary infections are also common.

There may also be some mental health issues that arise as a result of your experience. It is not uncommon for people who have experienced a bed bug infestation to suffer from PTSD, depression and anxiety.

Charges for related medical care will likely be reimbursed in any settlement.

Property Damage

Bed bugs can damage property as well. Beyond the walls, the insects hide in furniture and clothing. People will often be forced to get rid of their belongings to get rid of the infestation.

Property can also be damaged when treatments, either chemical or heat, are performed.

Compensation for damaged property is often a component of a settlement or judgment.

Tenants’ Rights

If a landlord rents you an apartment with a pre-existing bed bug infestation, or a hotel placed you in an infested room, they violated a number of your rights.

Beyond the bed bug bites, any scarring, emotional distress and property damage, there is a basic habitability expectation.

When you rent an apartment or book a hotel room, you have the basic expectation that you can safely live or stay there and that it is inhabitable. The presence of bed bugs destroys the habitability of that apartment. You could be due significant compensation if you were placed in an infested dwelling.
