Yes, you may be able to file a lawsuit for bed bugs at a Michigan hotel.
Under Michigan law, “bed bugs” are not explicitly mentioned, however it is deemed that hotel operators do have an obligation to protect the public against insects or conditions detrimental to human health. This means that it is the responsibility of hotel operators and mangers to protect their guests from bed bug bites. This includes routinely inspecting for bed infestations and taking all necessary steps to exterminate them from their property.
When this does not happen, or hotels are aware of a bed bug infestation yet fail to warn its guests, it does give rise to a lawsuit and the injured party may be able to file a claim against the negligent Michigan hotel.
