With the rise in travel volume in the United States, we are seeing an unprecedented epidemic with bed bug injuries and bed bug infestations with no signs of stopping. If you’ve encountered bed bug bites or red welts after staying at a hotel, you will want to learn more about how you can sue a hotel for bed bugs.
The Importance of Documenting Your Case for a Bed Bug Lawsuit
To sue a hotel for bed bugs, you need to ensure you have proper documentation and evidence of your case. If you have been bitten, look for indications and markings of bed bugs within the hotel room.
Grab a flashlight and inspect all areas of the room including the bed (bed sheets, comfortable, mattress, box spring, bed frame), furniture and other areas of the room. With the help of a flashlight, you should be able to find those bed bugs, bed bug eggs and other larvae.
Take as many pictures and videos as possible and capture bed bugs in a small plastic bag.
If you have been bitten, take pictures of your bed bug injuries as times goes on.
Once you have gathered your evidence, contact the hotel management and document each interaction with hotel management and the Department of Health in detail including names, titles and locations.
What Kind of Compensation Could I Expect?
Each bed bug injury case is unique. However, you could expect compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, replacement of your furniture and luggage as bed bugs will follow you through your luggage, hotel stay during extermination of bed bugs in your home.
