For a two week stay, Ms. Hil, our client, resided at a Hampton Inn located in Voorhees Township, New Jersey. An estimated 12 days into her stay, Ms. Hil observed bite marks on her body but had no idea where they came from. The next day, Ms. Hil checked out. While staying at the hotel, Ms. Hil did not observe any bed bugs in her room.
As time progressed so did Ms. Hil’s injuries. As a result, she had to undergo medical treatment. The doctor informed Ms. Hil the bites appeared as though they were caused by bed bugs. Upon returning home, Ms. Hil observed a bed bug in her apartment. Ms. Hil had never seen a bed bug in her home before. Ms. Hil immediately contacted Hampton Inn’s corporate office and reported the issue. Thereafter, Ms. Hil’s home required two treatments to get rid of the bed bug infestation.
Ms. Hil wanted justice for the injuries and damages she sustained. Ms. Hil turned to our bed bug attorneys for assistance. Once retained, our attorneys got to work on Ms. Hil’s case. The hotel and insurance carrier were very responsive and understanding of Ms. Hil’s claim. Due to their cooperation a fast settlement was reached. Ms. Hil’s case ultimately settled for $8,500.
