    Bed Bugs

    I need some advice on what kind of action to take, if any, against [a store] for delivering furniture to my home that was infested with bed bugs. The company has agreed to fumigate our home but they want us to sign this lengthy disclosure stating that we wont take further action against them along with many other things. They are saying they will not fumigate our home until we sign this disclosure/release form. A part of me wants to sign it right away and have them fumigate because the bed bugs are multiplying and its becoming a nuissance and health hazard for me and my family. The other part of me wants to fight this because I feel like I shouldn't have to sign this release form. I wanted to get an Attorney's opinion on whether or not to sign. I've written to a couple attorneys but have yet to get a response.

    Can someone lead me in the right direction on this?

    Thank you

    Call and make an appointment with an attorney, emailing is useless.  Unless you want to wait years for the litigation to runs its course, i would get it over with now and sign or pay someone else to fumigate.

    If it were me, I would get them in there asap.  I would also make sure that they guaranteed that you would be bed bug free after the treatment.  Make them guarantee it in writing.

    You have the option of paying your own pest control service to fumigate and take the time to make sure that there is complete eradication with no ensuing issues and then seek reimbursement from the movers.

    Personally, there's no way I would sign a release before the fumigation is done.

    Once you sign, your power is gone.

    Up to you.
