Suing A Hotel For Bed Bug Bites, Allergic Reaction & Expenses

Mr L was staying at a London hotel while on a business trip, where he was severely bitten all over his body by bed bugs. Though his hotel room appeared generally clean, he did observe that the carpet appeared not to have been recently vacuumed. Mr L noticed about 20 bites on his body the following morning, and more continued to erupt throughout the day, causing severe itching, inflammation and swelling. Fearing that he had suffered an allergic reaction, he saw a doctor, who informed him that the marks of his skin were bed bug bites, and prescribed him antihistamines to combat the symptoms.

Mr L’s schedule of business meetings was badly disrupted, and he complained to the hotel’s manager, who apologised and said that their case management team would contact him once the room had been tested by pest control.

  • Our Legal Advice
The day after returning home, Mr L received a call confirming that the room had tested positive for bed bugs and had been temporarily taken out of service. They also offered to refund his stay in full. By this point however, Mr L had been forced to spend a considerable amount of money on disinfecting both his own home, and the home of parents, where he often stayed. Mr L subsequently instructed Bartletts Solicitors to begin a personal injury claim against the hotel, as he was dissatisfied by their response to the incident. This was a reasonably simple case to resolve, as the hotel fully admitted responsibility for Mr L’s bed bug bites, and the latter’s doctor confirmed the extent of the skin damage they had caused. We were able to negotiate a compensation settlement totalling £4,000, reflecting the liability of the hotel for the injury done to Mr L, and the financial expenses he had incurred as a result.
