Bedbug bites can be very itchy and painful. While you may not suffer long-term medical complications following bedbug bites, these tiny insects can cost you sleep and trigger a range of allergic reactions.
If you suffer bedbug bites while in a hotel or Airbnb room, you may be eligible for compensation through a bedbug lawsuit. To successfully file your claim, however, you need evidence.
Medical treatment is key to the outcome of your claim
Seeking medical attention immediately following bedbug bites is also crucial for your personal injury claim because it will help establish two things:
- The cause of your injuries – During your hospital visit, a doctor will certainly examine your bites and any rash to determine what caused them. Thereafter, they will write a medical report that you can use later to establish a connection between your stay and your injuries
- The extent of your injuries – Basically, this has to do with the number and location of bites, the severity of the symptoms as well as the cost of treating your symptoms.
- Your primary concern needs to be your health, of course. Since bedbug bites can be so painful and induce rashes, you may require long-term care from a dermatologist or another specialist to make sure that you don’t end up with scarring. All of that can be costly, which is why it’s essential to protect your rights.
