The Harm Caused by Bed Bug Infestations in Hotels
Most pests are harmless. This is not the case with bed bugs. Bed bugs can cause harm on many different levels. The most obvious and most common harm caused by bed bugs is bed bug bites. Bed bug bites can be itchy and uncomfortable, which can cause victims to scratch. Scratching can quickly turn minor bed bug bites into serious issues. Specifically, scratching could cause the bed bug bites to become infected and eventually leave scars. In some cases, bed bug bites result in allergic reactions – which can be life-threatening for people that might not even be aware that they are allergic to bed bugs. This physical harm could lead to expensive medical bills. Exposure to bed bugs could also result in mental and emotional harm. Encounters with bed bugs could be traumatic. Victims and their families could be left dealing with anxiety, embarrassment, depression, fear, and PTSD, for example. In these cases, victims and their families might be unable to return the state in which they were living prior to their exposure.
A bed bug infestation in a hotel could also result in significant property damage. Any luggage that was in the hotel could be infested. If you unknowingly bring your infested luggage into your home, the infestation could have spread into your home – causing even more property damage.
Are Hotels Liable for Damages Caused by Bed Bugs?
Can a hotel be held accountable for the harm that their guests suffer after being unknowingly exposed to bed bug infestations? Hotels have the duty to promote the safety of their guests. They must ensure that their hotel rooms are free of any hazards, such as bed bug infestations. After becoming aware of a bed bug infestation, the hotel management must act appropriately to address the infestation and ensure that there is no longer a risk to guests. When they fail to address infestations, they could be held accountable for the harm suffered by their guests. In some cases, hotels claim that they were not aware of an existing infestation. If the hotel staff and management failed to inspect a specific room and subsequently failed to become aware of an infestation (even though they should have been aware), they could also be held accountable. If hotels are found to be at-fault for the exposure to the infestation, they could be financially liable for any damages.
