Marriott Hotel Bed Bug Injuries

While Marriott is a well-known hotel chain, it also owns numerous other hotel chains across the U.S. and the globe. With over 1 million rooms and 5700 properties, it is possible to stay in a Marriott hotel in over 110 countries. Some of the Marriott brands including the Ritz-Carlton, JW Marriott, Sheraton, Westin, Courtyard, Four Points and Fairfield Inn & Suites.

While Marriott certainly has a reputation for quality and sophistication, it is still possible to become the victim of bed bugs when staying at one of their hotels. Bed bugs do not discriminate based on the cost of the room – they are happy to infest beds in both high-end hotels and budget motels.

Marriott Hotel Bed Bug Injuries

The Importance of Checking Your Room

No matter what new place you are sleeping, whether it is the JW Marriott or the Fairfield Inn & Suites, it is worthwhile to check your room for bed bugs before you settle in, even before you start to unpack. Bed bugs can be seen by the naked eye, including the adult bugs, larvae and eggs. You can also sometimes see flecks of rust-colored waste left behind by the bugs.

Pull back the sheets and look for bed bugs along the seems of the mattress, under the mattress, behind the headboard and along the baseboards of the walls. They may also be in the furniture.

If you find bed bugs notify the Marriott management team immediately. If possible, stay at a different hotel, or at least in a room in a different part of the hotel.

How Hotel Claims Work

A successful Marriott bed bugs lawsuit requires proving negligence on the part of the hotel owner or management. You have to be able to show that your injuries were the result of negligence, such as the owner knowing about bed bug infestations but not doing anything about it – or doing far too little.

The first step you should take after being bitten is to take pictures of everything – your bites, evidence of bed bugs, etc. Document any medical care you get, time taken from work due to your injuries, and anything else related to the bed bugs. As your legal team, we will need all of your evidence to build your case.

  3. I stayed at the Sheraton Memphis Downtown Hotel, I unpacked my cloths and put some in the closet and some in drawer, Friday, later that afternoon I had 4 bites on my wrist, 3 on the right and 1 on the left. Saturday later afternoon, I took a nap with just my underwear and while bathing I started itching, I had multiple bites on the right side of my body and 2 on the left side of my body, during the dance event I attended, I started itching badly. I asked the man working the registration desk for a First Aid Kit, he said they didn’t have one, so I asked him, Can you ask Housekeeping and he refused . When I returned I rubbed Icee hot on the areas and repacked my clothes. I slept on top of the other bed and only had 1 bite on my forehead. After checkout I asked for a Manager and Security came out a took a statement from me and pictures. Since I have been bitten, it has been a nightmare, time-consuming and costly, from Dr visit, prescriptions, items bought to calm down the itching, taking my braids out because I saw a few bugs while I was showering at home, washing cloths, bagging cloths in Ziplock bags. I am just pissed and devastated

  4. Regina, thank you so much for contacting our office. Memphis Tennessee Bed Bug Injury Cases are not as common for us as many other cities across the country. An important fact to remember about injury claims in Tennessee is that the state has a 1 year statute of limitations. This means that you only have one year within which to file a lawsuit for your bed bug injuries. We find that many times, this fact gives rise to a lot of lawsuit being filed unnecessarily simply because there is not a lot of time to obtain the insurance carrier for the hotel, compile a settlement brochure and negotiate a resolution. For this reason, we are extremely selective with cases from Tennessee. We would be happy to review your information and provide a case evaluation free of charge. While we are happy to evaluate your potential case, we do not take on representation as your attorneys unless and until we discuss the pros and cons of your particular claim. Please visit our Do I Have a Case link to upload your case information so we may review it. Thank you again for contacting our office.
