Children Bitten By Bed Bugs At Holiday Resort

Our firm recently acted on behalf of two small children who were on holiday with their parents at a resort and were bitten repeatedly by bed bugs on their first night’s stay. The children woke up with itchy and unsightly red welts all over their bodies, and were deeply distressed by the situation. They received basic first aid at the holiday resort’s medical centre, and the family decided to cut short their holiday and leave the same day.

Despite the family’s best cleaning efforts prior to departure, the bed bugs had already infiltrated the children’s luggage, and the family home later required the services of pest control specialists to eradicate a bed bugs infestation. Mr and Mrs F complained to the resort’s management, and were offered a refund on their stay, but feeling that this was a wholly inadequate response to what they had gone through, decided to seek legal advice.

  • Our Legal Advice
As both children were minors in the eyes of the law, their parents were required to act on their behalf, and subsequently instructed Bartletts Solicitors to make a claim against the holiday resort for the pain, suffering and disruption to the family holiday that had resulted from the bed bug bites. In correspondence, we pointed out that holiday resorts are subject to the terms of the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957, and must take all reasonable measures to prevent foreseeable hazards, such as a bed bugs infestation, from causing harm to their visitors. In this case, we argued that the resort was clearly liable for failing to provide Mr and Mrs F’s children with reasonably safe accommodation. Following an admission of liability from the holiday resort’s insurers, the children received a combined total of compensation in excess of £5,000 for their injuries, and the loss of enjoyment of their holiday.
