Tenant Claims Emotional Distress Due to Bedbugs
LVT Number: #24720
Tenant sued landlord for personal injury and emotional distress, claiming that her apartment was infested with bedbugs and that she had been bitten. The court denied landlord's request to dismiss the case without a trial and dismissed some of tenant's claims before trial. Tenant appealed and lost. The lack of medical treatment, while significant when determining damages, didn't require dismissal outright of tenant's claim for personal injuries.
