If you travel for work or pleasure, you’ve stayed in hotels or other places like bed and breakfasts or even other rental properties while you’re away from home. One of the most important factors for travelers in New Jersey is that place they’re staying at for the night is clean and tidy. There is nothing worse than walking into a dirty hotel room.
However, while some of the dirt may be unappealing, there is another kind of unkemptness that can make you sick. If a person who previously stayed in the room had bedbugs or if an infestation has started on the property, a person staying in that room could easily be affected. Bedbugs are tiny bugs that bite and suck blood and are usually found in the sheets and on the mattress in hotel rooms. Bedbugs will often leave specific bite patterns, and if you are bitten specific bumps will appear on your skin.
In addition, a person’s belongings could become infested and thus could accidentally transmit the bedbugs to other areas, such as the person’s home. Eradicating a bedbug infestation is crucial to ensuring that no one else is bitten or transmitting the bug to new areas. At Albert Buzzetti & Associates LLC, we are here to help those who have suffered losses due to a bedbug incident at a hotel or other property. We know how costly it can be to rid yourself of this issue and to treat the bites medically.
Failing to keep premises clean is usually a reason a hotel room will become infested with bedbugs. It is the hotel’s responsibility to ensure their premises are clean and safe. Failure to do so could mean bedbugs and the corresponding premises liability suit that follows. Seeking damages for personal injury and property damage due to bedbugs is a real thing and does affect people when they are infested at a hotel property.
