    Default Bed Bug Bites While Staying in a Motel

    My question involves injury or loss that occurred in the state of: Arizona

    My son and I checked into a motel 6 and I was bitten by bed bugs. I had a severe allergic reaction and had to go the emergency room of the local hospital. I was put on 5 different medications and put in the position of not being able to drive due to the medications. This cost me 5 days of my time with my son, not to mention the prescriptions, the cab fares, the stress, the emergency room fees and the motel is doing nothing about it. They gave me 2 free nights stay.

    The reason I was at the motel is I am trying to get out of an abusive relationship and the last thing I needed right now is the added stress of all of this.

    I have tried to find a lawyer that would advise me of my rights if any but no one seems to do this kind of a claim. Is there anything I can do to recover the costs of this in terms of the medical and loss of time? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    If anyone has the name of a lawyer in the Phoenix area that could help me it would be greatly appreciated as well please.

    Contact the Maricopa County Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service. There have been cases in which bedbug bites have been established as legitimate personal injuries.

    Read here, here, and here.

    Good for you in getting out of the relationship.

    You can check around online for resources including temporary shelter and counceling.

    There have been a number of cases where bed bugs have resulted in fairly significant damage settlements and awards. You shouldn't have that difficult of a time finding a personal injury attorney to take the case.
