What to Expect When You Trust Our Personal Injury Lawyers With Your Bed Bug Injury Case
Maybe your apartment was infested. Maybe you got bed bugs while staying at a hotel room in downtown Houston, Texas. Maybe your aging family’s member’s nursing home was riddled with the little pests. Here’s the bottom line – if you’ve suffered injuries or damage to property because of bed bugs and someone else is responsible, you may have the right to receive compensation.
That’s because businesses, property owners, and landlords in Texas have a responsibility to make sure their premises are safe, clean, and/or habitable. If they know about a bed bug infestation, they have a legal obligation to do something about it. Preventative measures have to be in place. When those things don’t happen, bed bugs can thrive and innocent people like you can suffer the consequences.
However, no one will want to voluntarily accept responsibility (or financial liability) for your bed bug injuries. If you want to get the money you deserve, you’ll have to put up a fight and demand to be compensated. Hiring the best personal injury lawyer in Houston, TX can help to make the process a whole lot easier and help to position you to get every last dollar you deserve.

And, that’s precisely what our bed bug attorneys will do.

When we’re involved, it will force them to take your case seriously and ditch their unsavory tactics. We’ll approach them with a strong claim, backed by expert testimony and solid evidence in an effort to leverage a fair settlement offer on your behalf.
Litigate: Sometimes insurance companies or at-fault parties just won’t cooperate. If you’re not offered a fair payout, or if you’re unhappy with the offers you receive, our award-winning Texas trial lawyers won’t hesitate before bringing your case to a jury.
There’s no time to waste. The sooner you give us a call, the sooner we can begin to fight to secure the compensation you deserve. So, reach out to our Houston law firm today online or by phone to schedule your free consultation.
Are Bed Bugs a Big Problem in Houston, TX?
Yes. Houston regularly ranks as one of the worst cities in the United States when it comes to bed bugs. Every year, the pest control company Terminix publishes a bed bug report, which lists the top 50 bed bug cities across the nation. Houston ranked 12th in the 2019 report.
Houston has previously been ranked in the top 10. In 2018, the city landed at number 9 on the list.
The change could be due to the fact that there are actually fewer bed bugs in Houston. Alternatively, it could just reflect a growing problem in other urban areas across the country. However, in any event, bed bugs are still very much a problem in Houston.
We’ll Help You Fight to Get Money For All Of Your Bed Bug Injuries
Bed bugs are small brown parasites. They survive by feeding on the blood of a warm-blooded host. They’re drawn to carbon dioxide and heat, so humans are their favorite.
