We Help Those Bitten by Bed Bugs from Furniture

It is a horrible experience when you finally receive your new couch or bed, only to learn a few days or weeks latter that it is infested with bed bugs and causing you to be bitten all over your body. Bed bug lawsuits and claims against furniture stores for either selling or renting furniture infested with bed bugs have increased significantly over the last few years. As bed bug lawyers, we represent individuals that have been bitten by bed bugs after they have purchased furniture from new, used and rental furniture stores ranging from mattresses to couches infested with bed bugs.

A leading cause in the spread of bed bugs over the past couple of years has been the sale of incorrectly inspected and fumigated refurbished furniture such as sofas, mattresses, box springs, headboards, chairs, couches, and carpets. Victims of bed bug bites due to the purchase of contaminated furniture from new, second hand, and rental furniture stores have a right to seek momentary recovery for their injuries.

The procedure for obtaining reasonable compensation for your inconvenience, pain and suffering and out-of-pocket expenses from a furniture store can be difficult and almost impossible without the assistance of a bed bug attorney. It is common practice for furniture retailers and their insurance companies to deny the existence of bed bugs, blame the customer for the bed bugs, and then continue to challenge the claims brought by customers. Some furniture stores will retain the services of an exterminator or entomologist to review a bed bug claim and render an opinion that the customer is responsible for the infestation. Additionally, furniture shops and their insurance companies will use multiple tactics to trick you into accepting blame for the bed bug infestation. One tactic in particular that they often use is having unadvised customers sign a general release in exchange for either a low ball minimal settlement or a replacement piece of furniture. If any store or insurance company ever contacts you directly about a settlement, you should never speak to them without the representation of a bed bug lawyer. Our law firm always offers a free initial consultation and we do not charge any fees or costs unless we make a recovery for you. Click here to contact us online.

  1. My wife and I purchased a new couch from a large department store (new). We had it delivered by them. Within a week, she started noticing bites on her arm, and now, a month later, we had someone come check our Chicago apartment. The exterminator found signs of bed bug activity in our unit, but not in the surrounding units. We are now having our apartment treated and unsure what to do with our furniture. We also have had not taken any trips or traveled during that time. Given the time frame it all happened, we are sure it had to come from the couch.

    We have not yet reached out to the retailer. We are unsure what to do at this point (besides get rid of the bugs). Should we reach out to the retailer or will they just tell us to bug off (pun intended)?

  2. Thank you for visiting bedbuglaw.com. Furniture cases can be difficult to prove the longer it takes to notice the bed bug infestation.

  4. The biggest concern you should have is whether your home will be infested. If the furniture was removed and confirmed to contain bed bugs, I would hire a professional pest control expert to come to your home.

  13. I got a couch from Rent a Center in Pawtucket RI yesterday. I fell asleep on it at around 7pm, and woke up at 11pm and there was a bed bug crawling on me and two more hiding in one of the creases of the couch. I have put down a ring of diatomaceous earth so they cannot spread and have sealed off my living room as an extra precaution. I will be going as soon as they open to have them take the couch back, what else should I do? Can I request that they seal the couch in plastic before moving it so they don’t spread the bed bugs further? I’ve taken 5 showers since 11PM I feel like I’m losing my mind.

  17. I’ve only had my furniture not even 48 hours and I’ve found and collected bed bugs and have pictures and videos of us finding these on the couch. I’ve never had this problem ever. I sat on the couch and not even 20 mins into sitting on it I broke out in welts all along my back side that was against the couch as well as my shoulder and legs. I spoke with them and rick from Aaron’s on n. Florida in tampa,fl was very rude and told me they treat the furniture. This I know is a lie because I’ve never had this problem and with the corona virus going on I cant really go to the hospital for bites due to being high risk. I have videos pictures times and dates please tell me u can help me.

  18. My boyfriend and I just purchased a mattress and a adjustable base from a local furniture store here in Virginia about a month and a half ago. We were riding in the car a couple of days ago and I noticed a bed bug crawling on my leg. Needless to say we checked our mattress and didn’t notice any there but when we lifted up the adjustable base there they were. They had also gotten into our bed frame which we had to toss out. We went out and bought mattress covers for both the mattress and base. We also bought some spray and some dust. We can’t afford to have a pest control company to come in so we are trying to do it on our own. We haven’t noticed them in any other room. Just our bed room. I’m not sure if there is anything that we can do.
