Can I sue for Hotel Room Bed Bug Infestation Injuries


Can a Hotel Be Sued for Bed Bugs in Room - Lawsuit Information Bed bug infestations are a growing dilemma facing hotel guests. Hotel operators and owners owe a duty of care to guests to prevent and take steps to remediate hotel rooms infested with bed bugs. Often times guests are unaware of the issue and wake up the following day to find bites all over their body or in one specific area. To make matters worse, hotel owners and operators will deny that the bites were the result of bed bugs. Guests are left with painful bites, scaring and deep emotional and psychological issues. If you have been bitten by bed bugs while on vacation in your hotel room know your rights and take action. In order to receive compensation for your bed bug bites accident is to build a good case. A good case will provide the necessary evidence to prove that the hotel was negligent in their actions and failed to provide you – the customer – with the necessary duty of care. Building a solid case, however, is more challenging than you’d imagine. And so, to help you build that case that will help you get the right compensation for your injuries is the Downtown LA Law Group. Our experienced bed bug personal injury attorneys will help you at every step of the way. They will answer any questions you have regarding your case so that you can make informed decisions regarding your case. Our attorneys will use their knowledge of the law to help you get settled.

Step 1: Document Everything

Documentation is key to a good case. If you claim that you received bed bug bites at a hotel, it is imperative that you document everything necessary to make your case as compelling as possible. Without it, there won’t be any evidence to prove your case. For example, if you received bed bug bites but didn’t take any pictures, nor notified the hotel, nor visited the doctor for your treatment, there won’t be anything to prove your pain and suffering. No judge on the planet will rule in your favor without evidence, and we as lawyers can’t simply pull evidence out of thin air. Document every step of the incident. The more information you have the better your case is. Here is a list of what you should document: Document Everything - Bed bug infestations are a growing dilemma facing hot guests
  • Manager’s name;
  • Name of any housekeeper or staff who cleaned your room;
  • When the room was last cleaned;
  • Whether the room has had any previous bed bug issues;
  • Whether former guests in the hotel complained of bed bugs;
  • Photos of bites–this is very important. Take as many photos of your bites as you can;
  • If you visit a doctor keep records of your visit, including receipts of creams purchased, name of your doctor and time of visit;
  • If exterminator was contacted by the hotel make sure you write down the name of the company conducting the extermination.

Step 2: Contact County Health Department

After you’ve documented the initial bites and information regarding the hotel management/housekeeping, as well as notified the hotel staff, you’ll want to notify an official office. Having an official record of the incident is important and helps add credibility to your case. Contact the county health department in your area and report the issue. Often times they will immediately send out staff to inspect and notate the issue. Make sure you get the name of the county official or employee who is dispatched to take the report. Ask for a copy of the report or whether one can be mailed to you.

Step 3: Do NOT Speak With Hotel Manager or Insurance

Hotel owners will attempt to avert liability from their establishment. Can you blame them? An owner has no reason to trust that one of its customers all of a sudden has bed bugs. Many will blame the guest for the bed bugs and deny any liability, claiming that the bed bugs were brought in by the customer and it was them who caused the outbreak. Others will attempt to make a quick clean up before county health officials arrive to notate the instance. It is important to make sure the county health department has a record before a clean up is conducted. This will help in proving your case and becomes a very important document in obtaining a settlement. If you are note moving out of the hotel you should request a room change to avoid continued harm.

Step 4: Get Medical Attention

Hotel Owner Liability for Bed Bugs in Hotel Room It is important that you seek medical attention for your injuries. You may have an allergic reaction to the bites. More serious cases can require plastic surgery to reduce scarring or keloid scarring. It is important that you get proper medical attention to help with any pain or itching you may be suffering. The reason you want to receive medical attention is because there is a direct correlation between the extent of the medical treatment you receive relating to your injuries and the value of your case. Without the medical treatment, the case value diminishes greatly and you may lose out on compensation. Bedbug injuries can have long lasting psychological and physical scarring. Clients often feel trauma from being bitten by bedbugs. Many are unable to sleep for months at a time and are constantly afraid of being bitten. To make matters worse many merely brush off their injuries.
