Infestations in Hotels and Resorts are Common
Unfortunately, bed bug infestations in hotels and resorts are very common. This is because there are people constantly checking in and moving within these locations. If even one person unknowingly brings bed bugs into the premises, an infestation can develop within just a matter of weeks. This is because hotels and resorts are perfect for infestations to thrive. There are plenty of hiding places for bed bugs as well as plenty of people sleeping (a constant source of food for bed bugs). Because bed bugs are excellent at hiding, quick inspections (after reports of bed bugs, for instance) could fail to find the bed bugs. Additionally, bed bugs are often resistant to extermination, so the infestation could persist even after treatment has been attempted. In most cases, unfortunately, hotel and resort owners simply disregard bed bug infestations – because they care about profit. If there rooms have to be out of commission for treatment, they lose significant money.
Harm Related to Bed Bug Infestations in Hotels and Resorts
If you or your family were exposed to a bed bug infestation at a hotel or resort in Brownsville or South Padre Island, you likely suffered at least some degree of harm. Some of the harm or damages that those exposed to bed bug infestations could suffer includes the following:

If affected parties unknowingly bring bed bug infestations into their homes, they could also potentially have to spend thousands on extermination treatments (that might not even work). In addition, they will have to face the costs of replacing damaged property. Regardless of the specific way that you or your family were harmed by a bed bug infestation, you should seek legal assistance – as you might be eligible to pursue a claim.
Can You Sue?
Can you sue for the bed bug harm that you or your family suffered after being exposed to an infestation at a hotel or resort? Yes, you can sue. Your right to sue is based on the fact that hotel owners and resort owners, alike, have a duty of care towards you and all their guests. They have a duty to ensure that their entire premises are safe for their guests; this includes a duty to ensure that there premises are free of any vermin (such as bed bugs). If property owners fail to identify and address the bed bug infestation present in their premises, they could be liable for any harm resulting from guests being exposed to bed bugs. Many property owners will claim that they were unaware of the infestation – this is typically a lie. However, even if they were truly unaware, they could be liable based on the fact that they should have known through routine inspections of their premises and actually investigating past complaints.
Regardless of your specific situation, you might have the right to sue. If you are interested in learning more about your right to sue, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm as soon as possible.
