Who’s Liable For My Long Island Bed Bug Injuries?
Bed bug infestations on Long Island tend to happen in apartment buildings and hotels. Generally speaking, these are high-traffic areas where a lot of people come and go frequently. Since bed bugs will hitch a ride on almost anything, this makes these places more susceptible to infestations.
Landlords and property owners are responsible for making sure that those infestations don’t happen. You’re entitled to clean, sanitary, habitable living conditions. This is known as an Implied Warranty of Habitability. If a landlord or hotel property owner has actual or constructive knowledge of a bed bug infestation, they have an obligation to do something about it. They have to take steps to fix the situation, remove the bed bugs, and keep you safe.
When infestations do happen, this could mean that landlords or owners were negligent in carrying out their responsibilities. When that happens, these parties can be on the hook for resulting damages.
