Bed Bug Injuries
Bed Bugs – The Scourge of the Hospitality Industry
Bed bugs are nasty parasitic insects that feed on blood and thrive in warm climates. They hide in mattresses, bedframes, furniture, and basically any place where people live or sleep.
Hard to detect until they bite you (usually at night), a bed bug infestation can happen anywhere and at any time in Florida (even at the nicest accommodations) and leave you or a loved one covered with red bites/welts and suffering from an itchy rash, allergic reaction, permanent scars, psychological damage and more.
Bed bug infestations are a huge concern for Florida hotels, motels, and vacation rentals because once an infestation happens at a facility, it’s very hard to get rid of.
Florida law allows an affected person to sue a commercial property or facility and receive compensation and damages for medical bills, lost wages, therapy costs, pain and suffering and any expenses related to bed bug injuries.
Hotels or commercial facilities can be held liable for negligence if they failed to provide sanitary conditions free of bed bugs (or failed to notice the presence of bed bugs in their facility’s rooms) and if the person affected can prove that the facility caused their injury.
