Bed Bug Settlement of $250,000

Whitney, LLP recently recovered a $250,000 settlement in a hotel bed bug case in Maryland. The case arose out of the recurring scenario of a hotel that was indifferent to guest encounters with bed bugs.

Prior to our client being ravaged by bed bugs feeding upon her while she slept, the hotel had been informed by prior guests who had been badly bitten by bed bugs in the same room. Despite the prior complaints, the room remained in service and was neither inspected or treated by a licensed pest control company.

When a hotel knows or should know of the presence of bed bugs in a guest room, the standard of care requires that the room be placed out of order, and a licensed pest control company should be immediately called to inspect and treat. Ignoring or delaying professional treatment only causes the infestation to become more severe and endangers guests.

Bed Bug Settlement after Lawsuit Filed

The hotel in this case initially responded to our client’s complaint with a dismissive offer of $25.

Through Whitney, LLP’s experienced Baltimore Bed Bug Lawyer representation the case resolved for on amount 10,000 times greater than the initial offer.

Bed bug claims are often denied or offered a low figure by insurance adjusters who try to take advantage of a victim who does not know the value of their claim.

Whitney, LLP’s bed bug lawyers have experienced filing lawsuits and recovering significant compensation for our clients who have been bitten by bed bugs.

We previously recovered a $100,000 jury verdict for a woman who was badly bitten after staying at a Red Roof Inn in Maryland.

Guest Complaints Ignored for Years

After the lawsuit was filed, we fought to get years of guest complaints.  It turns out that guest complaints were being ignored routinely.

Further, either little or no treatment was being performed in response to guest complaints of bed bugs.

Instead, infested rooms were allowed to stay infested.
