Yes, you can. A landlord has an obligation to keep your apartment bedbug free, so the landlord should take reasonable steps to keep bedbugs from coming into your apartment from a neighboring apartment. If your landlord isn’t automatically inspecting neighboring apartments and treating them if necessary or sealing up holes and cracks that provide access for bedbugs, you should make a written request that it do so. If the landlord doesn’t comply, and you get bedbugs, then you will have a stronger claim of negligence, potentially giving you the right to compensation for out-of-pocket damages and other related damages.

If you are suffering from a bed bug infestation, there is a way to get compensation for your damages – and your bites. You may need to commence a bed bug lawsuit in order to be properly compensated for your injuries and out of pocket costs. Our New York Bed Bug injury Attorneys at The Law Offices of Effie Soter, P.C. are here to help.
