How Hotel Bed Bug Infestations Affect Guests
Hotels are required to maintain their rooms, public areas, and grounds, so that guests, visitors, and staff can all expect a reasonable amount of cleanliness and sanitation. When these standards are bypassed, problems arise including bed bugs and other pests.
The unfortunate truth is that bed bugs in hotels can appear in any setting—whether it’s a high-end luxury hotel or a one-star motel. Regardless of where you stay, though, you deserve to experience a high level of safety and sanitation.
When bed bugs infest a hotel, however, this means that staff has been negligent. You may be entitled to damages related to that negligence, whether you experienced bites and medical issues, property damage, or something else.
Signs of Bed Bug Infestations in Hotel Rooms
If you’re staying at a hotel, there are certain indications that can make it clear when a bed bug infestation is present. This can help you avoid experiencing bed bug bites, but these signs can also serve as evidence in a bed bug bite case. Signs of an infestation can include blood stains on sheets or pillowcases, dark or rust-colored spots of bed bug excrement on sheets or mattresses, musty odor from the bed bugs’ scent glands, or fecal spots, egg shells, or shed skins in areas where bed bugs hide. All of these signs can reveal an infestation resulting from hotel staff negligence.
Can You Sue a Hotel for Bed Bugs?
In many cases, bed bug bites can cause a combination of physical, mental and emotional distress, in addition to medical costs. All of these can culminate in a lawsuit and full compensation with the help of a qualified bed bug lawyer. You may be able to sue hotel owners and management for negligence if this is discovered to have been the cause of an infestation that affected you or a loved one. You’ll be able to sue for any of the damages that have resulted from an infestation at a hotel or other facility.
Types of Compensation Paid Out for Bed Bugs in Hotel Cases
In addition to costs and problems stemming from the actual bed bug bites in a hotel, there are a number of other types of compensation you may be eligible for. A skilled and experienced bed bug lawyer will be able to go over the various aspects of possible compensation with you. They can include:
- Property damage including property that had to be discarded to avoid bringing bed bugs home with you from the hotel in question
- Lost wages due to missed work from bed bug bite side effects
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress and trauma, including lack of sleep for fear of bed bug infestation
