Florida Bed Bug Injury Attorneys Hold Businesses Accountable For Injuries
Bed bugs are nasty parasitic insects that feed on blood and thrive in warm climates. They hide in mattresses, bed frames, furniture, and basically any place where people live or sleep, including hotels, motels, and vacation rentals.
Hard to detect until they bite you (usually at night), bed bugs are present just about everywhere and at any time in Florida (even at the nicest accommodations and even during the winter) and leave you covered with red bites/welts and suffering from an itchy rash, allergic reaction, permanent scars, psychological damage and more.
If you’ve been bitten by bed bugs, you probably had to seek medical treatment to deal with the pain and itching caused by the bites. You have also probably had your trip or vacation ruined. In more severe cases, you may have unknowingly taken the bed bugs home with you from a hotel stay, which may have resulted in paying a great deal of money to treat your home to rid yourself of the hard-to-kill pests.
For this reason, it’s essential to have an experienced attorney who understands the health and monetary issues that bed bugs can cause for victims. RTRLAW has qualified bed bug injury attorneys who will fight to help you obtain the compensation you deserve from a hotel or vacation rental for your bed bug bites.
Be sure to contact RTRLAW today or call toll free at 1-833-HIRE-RTR (1-833-447-3787) if you’ve suffered bed bug injuries or other related damages after a hotel or vacation rental stay.
How Common is It for Hotels to Have Bed Bugs?
Bed bug infestations are a huge concern for Florida hotels, motels, and vacation rentals because once an infestation happens at a facility, it’s challenging to get rid of the bugs without expensive pesticide treatments.
Florida law allows an affected person to sue a commercial property or facility and receive compensation and damages for medical bills, lost wages, therapy costs, pain and suffering, and any expenses incurred due to bed bug injuries.
Hotels or commercial facilities in Florida can be held liable for negligence if they failed to provide sanitary conditions free of bed bugs (or failed to notice the presence of bed bugs in their facility’s rooms) and if the person affected can prove that the facility caused their injury.
If you’ve been bitten by bed bugs at a commercial property, hotel, motel, or vacation rental in Florida, suffered an injury, and incurred medical expenses or damages, contact RTRLAW today.
What Types of Injuries Can Bed Bugs Cause?
Many travelers are unaware that bed bug bites can lead to more serious injuries. Often individuals mistakenly think that because a bed bug is tiny, even if they are bitten, nothing serious will come of it.
Nevertheless, victims of bed bug bites can experience a wide range of injuries, some of which can be difficult to treat or require numerous trips to the doctor. In addition, the costs associated with medical treatment and various prescriptions can quickly add up and may cause financial hardship for some injury victims.
Some of the most common physical injuries reported in association with bed bug injuries include:
- Allergic reactions
- Itching and swelling around the bite area.
- Permanent scarring
- Skin blemishes caused by bites
- Secondary skin infections
- Bleeding and open wounds
- Necrosis of the skin
Some other frequent symptoms of bed bug bites include fatigue, depression, insomnia, headaches, and emotional distress. Often bed bug injury victims are hesitant to tell others about their injuries because of the stigma attached to bed bugs in our society, leading them to deal with their injuries without emotional support from friends or family.
The experienced and compassionate attorneys of RTRLAW understand that bed bug injuries are NOT the victim’s fault. Our experienced personal injury attorneys are dedicated to helping bed bug injury victims obtain the financial compensation they deserve for their injuries.

How Can I Win a Bed Bug Injury Case?
According to Florida law, bed bug bites are a form of personal injury. Therefore, if you’ve suffered bed bug bites, you must proceed just as if you had been injured in any other accident caused by negligence.
The first step you should take to win a bed bug injury case is to hire a qualified attorney to represent you, such as RTRLAW’s personal injury attorneys, who can assist you by filing the necessary legal paperwork and acting as your legal advocate throughout the legal process.
The other critical aspect of winning a bed bug injury case is proper documentation. Proper documentation includes taking pictures and videos of your injuries and the bugs, and gathering all the medical reports, receipts for medication and other injury-related expenses, and any copies of any reports you made to the management of the hotel about the bed bugs. Proper documentation also includes reporting the incident to a manager or employee of the business establishment. Ask for a copy of any incident reports that may be generated by the business establishment but do not be surprised if they do not furnish you with a copy of the report.
The attorneys of RTRLAW can examine your case and determine what type of legal strategy would be appropriate for your situation. In some instances, the responsible party may agree to settle out of court. The hospitality industry or high end resorts for example, tend to shy away from negative publicity, and most would not want the general public to know they’ve had a problem with bed bugs.
However, if the liable party is unwilling to negotiate a settlement, RTRLAW’s attorneys are well prepared to take your case to court if necessary and fight for the compensation you deserve.
