Yes, hotels are liable for bed bugs and you can sue a hotel for bed bug bites and injuries suffered as a result of bed bugs in the hotel room. Bed bugs should not be present in any hotel room rented to you or anyone. Hotels which allow bed bugs to enter and remain in the rooms are responsible for the injuries the bed bugs cause.

Hotel owners and managers know that even though bed bugs are small, they are a big problem. Managers and owners will do whatever they can to prevent you from filing a bed bug claim or a lawsuit. They will attempt to offer you “free nights” or refund your stay if you agree to let the matter go. Do not accept any offers from the hotel until you speak with a bed bug lawyers first.
Why are Hotels Liable for Bed Bugs?
Hotels are liable for bed bugs if they are negligent in the ownership and maintenance of the hotel property. Most of our hotel claims fall under the “Premises Liability” theory of negligence. Hotels are responsible for the safety and well being of their guests. A hotel must follow strict protocols when inspecting rooms and using pest control experts to take care of any insect problems, including bed bugs. If a guest is exposed to bed bugs and is injured as a result of the hotels failure to inspect or properly treat a bed bug infestation, the hotel is responsible for damages as a result of the injuries. Many times, our office is able to negotiate a resolution with the insurance carrier for the hotel. Other times, we need to file a bed bug lawsuit and sue the hotel for damages.
