Bed Bug Injury Lawyers in Atlanta, Georgia


October 07, 2018

The children's nursery rhyme that wishes the child a restful night without interruption from biting bed bugs is more than just a cute thing to say to a child. Bed bug infestations are more frequent than ever. Bed bug outbreaks in hotels, hospitals, and other places where lodgers stay is a significant health problem. Most bed bug bites are annoying, itchy, red spots on your skin. Bites from bed bugs, fortunately, do not frequently lead to the spread of disease like fleas from rats spread the Bubonic Plague around Europe in medieval times. However, bed bug bites can create an enormous problem for you and your family.

If you or your family experienced adverse health effects from bed bug bites after staying in a hotel, hospital, or other location, you could be eligible to receive substantial monetary compensation.

How Can You Win Damagesfor Bed Bug Bites?

Bed bug bite injury cases, like all other personal injury claims, begin with accumulating as much evidence as you can. Evidence collection must startas soon as you suffer an injury. For example, if you woke in an Atlanta hotel one morning to discover that swollen red bumps are on your skin emitting g a little blood (bed bugs feed on the blood of humans and other animals), then you should preserve what documentation you can. 

You should inspect the bed and other furniture in the room and look for dead bugs and any blood stains.  Take photos of what you find. Next, you must let the hotel manager know immediately. Informing a person who is responsible for the premises can demonstrate the severity of the issue and prevents an argument that you might have fabricated your injuries later on. You also want the hotel to remediate the problem as soon as possible and telling the management will accomplish that goal.

Most bed bug bites heal on their own in a day or two. However, bites can become infected and, in rare instances, the person bitten may have an allergy to bed bug bites. A strong allergy can lead to anaphylactic shock, which is a life-threatening medical condition. One of the most significant injuries a person can have after a bed bug bite is insomnia. Bed bugs feed at night, and many people worry that they will be attacked again during their sleep. Consequently, they cannot rest and deprive themselves of much-needed sleep. 

Lack of sleep can have tremendous consequences on one's health and well-being. A sleep-deprived person cannot function at their job, remain alert while driving, and will experience a spike in cortisol, which is a hormone that leads to increased food consumption. Excessive food consumption can cause high blood pressure and diabetes among other health problems. 

For the benefit of your bed bug bite injury claim, you must document all of your medical issues related to the problem. Your bed bug injury attorney from Montlick & Associates will help you assemble all of the evidence you need and put together a compelling and persuasive claim so that you have the best chance of maximizing your financial recovery.
