I stayed in in Hotel and contracted Bed Bugs. I went to the Emergency Room. I left a copy of my Emergency Room visit with the Front Desk Clerk.
The total cost was over $1500. My insurance company picked up approximately $500 but my out of pocket cost was $942. Do I have Case? I reside in the Atlanta metro area. Am I entitled to compensation for my injuries? I did take pictures of the bites.
Perhaps so although claims for that amount may not be worth pursuing. Contact a personal injury attorney in Oklahoma City to determine your best course of action.

1/3 of bed bug bites get infected and require medical treatment, and you can pursue a claim against hotel
These claims are becoming more and more prevalent in the U.S., especially in the larger cites like New York, or even at some Disney hotels in Central Florida.
If you can prove that bed bugs from that hotel caused your injuries, you should have a case.
You should consult with an attorney in your area before taking any further action. You can use the "Find a Lawyer" link at the top of this page for names of attorneys in your area. Most even offer a free consultation and charge on a contingency fee basis so you don’t have to pay anything up front.
Also, you presented your question under Car accidents. I am redirecting your question to Personal Injury as this is not a car accident question.
