Bed bugs are a growing problem in the hotel industry both in the UK and abroad. Bed bug bites are particularly unpleasant and can result in significant discomfort and even scarring.
If you have suffered from bed bug bites, it is important that you contact a specialist solicitor straight away so we can take instructions from you and prevent other people suffering from a similarly unpleasant experience.
Bedbug bites can cause itchy red bumps on the skin which usually occur on exposed areas such as the face, neck, arms, legs or hands. The bites can become infected causing increased redness, pain and swelling. Should this occur then it is important you visit your GP.
Signs of bedbug infestation can include small bugs or white eggs around the joints of your mattress or furniture, small black spots on your mattress and bites. Bedbugs tend to come out at night and bite exposed skin. It is important that bedbugs are kept under control as they can easily be transported through luggage, furniture and clothing.
Hotels both in the UK and abroad should be carrying out regular checks on mattresses within their hotel to ensure the room does not become infested with bedbugs. Unfortunately, these procedures are not always followed and hotels visitors and therefore exposed to the risk of bed bugs.
