LAKE FOREST: 40 Suffer Mite Bites After Infestation at Elementary School

LAKE FOREST, California (October 7, 2016) –-Some 30 students and 10 staff members suffered severe rashes reportedly caused by mites in a nearby play area at the Lake Forest Elementary School, according to a report by the Saddleback Valley Unified School District.

The students and staff were allegedly bitten by the blood-sucking mites causing the mysterious red rash, but now vector control may have solved the mystery.

An investigation into what caused severe red bites or welts, which was first discovered on Sept. 15, was headed up by the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District. They determined that recently laid wood chips found in an area near the grass playing field were infested with mites.  It’s unclear at this time where the mites came from, but the investigation is ongoing.

The school district is treating the problem based on the Vector Control’s recommendations and students or adults who suffered bites are warned they could bring these critters home with them.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
