Yes, but probably a waste of time and money. Probibility of success is very low. What are your damages, medical bills, etc? Most lawyers decline these type of cases.
If it's something you want to pursue there are lawyers that do bed bug cases, but most don't. Try the find a lawyer tool on this site and if that doesn't work try google.
You should post this question to the NC lawyers as NC law would apply.

Yes. You will need to hire a lawyer in NC. I would hire someone who works near the location of the infested hotel in case they need to investigate the scene or track down witnesses like an exterminator. I handled a bed bug case several years ago. It wasn't a huge settlement, but was worthwhile for all involved. Settled without a trial. A lawyer can look up reviews about the place to see if there were past complaints and send an appropriate demand letter.
Yes, I've seen settlements go up to 30K for bed bug bites, despite the average lawyer thinking they are worthless claims.
