Personal Injury Claims for Bed Bug Bites in Georgia


November 30, 2018

The mere thought of going to bed and being bitten by just slightly larger than microscopic insets is enough to keep anyone up at night. Bed bugs average one millimeter to seven millimeters (or about 1/4 of an inch) in length yet they can wreak havoc on a person's life. Bed bugs only eat at night, usually right before daybreak. They hide in the bedding, furniture, and walls during the day. If there are just a few around, entomologists, or scientists who study bugs, say they will live closer to sleeping humans. However, if the colony grows, they will spread out around the house and find their living spaces in couches and chairs in the living rooms. A massive infestation of bed bugs emits a distinctive odor which is present throughout the house.

A bed bug infestation is not necessarily the product of a dirty house or someone living in squalor. You can pick up bed bugs and bring them home from hotels, hospitals, and other places where people sleep. You can bring a nest home with you from any number of places in your clothing or luggage, or bed bugs can attack you while you are a guest in a hotel or a patient at a hospital.

Compensation for Bed Bug Injuries in Georgia

If you were the victim of a bed bug attack while lodging in a hotel or other location or you brought home an infestation after just leaving a place crawling with bed bugs, you might be eligible for a cash award. People across the country have filed claims seeking monetary compensation for their losses due to bed bug bites. If you have been exposed to bed bugs because of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for any medical bills, future medical costs, lost wages, mental anguish, or pain and suffering resulting from bed bug bites.

Bedbug Injuries

Most people only think about the bites when the topic of bedbugs enters the conversation. However, since bedbugs only feed at night, bedbugs feast on sleeping people. As a result, many people suffer significant mental anguish and become insomniacs because they harbor a well-justified fear of getting bitten. Another common symptom of bedbug bite victims is the sensation of bugs crawling on the individual or in the bed despite even though the infestation no longer exists.

Prolonged lack of sleep can result in significant physical and mental suffering. People who do not get enough sleep suffer from:

  • Decreased mental acuity making tasks like driving or operating machinery difficult,
  • Lowered sex drive,
  • Increased levels of cortisol prompting excessive eating and weight gain,
  • Diabetes.
  • High blood pressure, and
  • Heart disease.

Several claimants around the United States have successfully filed personal injury claims for bed bug bites. Do not delay. Contact Montlick & Associates today to learn about your legal rights as well as what steps to take to protect those rights.
