Our Michigan personal injury lawyers are currently accepting cases for victims who have suffered from bed bug injuries at a Michigan hotel. Hotels unfortunately are one of the most common places attacks do occur. Instances of bug bites often occur when the hotel operator or manager knows of the infestation problem yet fails to inform their guests.
Under Michigan law, “bed bugs” are not explicitly mentioned, however there are laws in place that authorize the government to protect the public against insects or or conditions detrimental to human health. Therefore, protecting the public against bed bugs does apply and hotel operators do have an obligation to guests to routinely inspect for bed infestations and take all necessary steps to exterminate them from their property.
When an individual does suffer severe injury or harm from bed bugs, they do have legal rights and may be able to sue the Michigan hotel for their pain and suffering. Compensation in these types of claims can include damages for all medical costs incurred, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and property damage.
Victims bitten should first seek medical treatment for their injuries if attacked. In addition, they should make a report to the hotel management team and keep copies of them for their own records. These reports should include detailed information on all contacts made concerning the incident and include the date, time and place where the bites occurred. This report will also be very valuable if you decide to file a bed bug claim against the Michigan hotel.
