Bed Bugs in Resorts
If you've been bitten by bed bugs in a resort—like a Disney resort, Orlando resort, or a resort elsewhere—you may be entitled to damages.
Technically, bed bugs can infest any location. They can certainly infest resorts, as the evidence shows. Even resorts as distinguished as Disney can have a bed bug problem. This is why it’s so very crucial that resort staff and management take extreme measures to ensure that bed bugs don’t appear in resorts. Some of the most common causes of bed bugs in resorts is simply that guests come from far and wide. This means that if the last place they were staying happened to have bed bugs, then the resort will now get bed bugs. This is how bed bugs spread. They hide in clothing, luggage and shoes and propagate from one location to the next. The worse part is, there’s no way of knowing if your resort has bed bugs before you check in. Unfortunately, bed bugs are so good at hiding that a resort room can appear to be spotless, yet be infested with bed bugs.

Bed Bugs in Orlando Resorts?
Another common cause of bed bugs is lack of cleanliness. Other Orlando resorts also commonly have trouble with bed bugs for various reasons. Bed bugs love to hide in places where the cleaning staff doesn’t clean. Not all resorts are as vigilant about cleanliness as they claim to be. In the end, it’s up to the actual maids to ensure that a resort accommodation is completely cleaned and sanitized.
Bed bugs hide in out of the way locations such as behind draperies, in the folds of bedspreads and sheets, in the corners of bed frames, in the tiny little crack between the carpet and the wall, underneath doors and in other out of the way places that some maids may fail to clean.
If just one resort maid fails to thoroughly clean a resort room, any bed bugs in that room can quickly multiply, making the problem ten times worse. Then, if the maid after that tries to clean, the chances are much higher that she will miss areas where bed bugs are hiding out.
If you have stayed at a resort and have been affected by bed bugs, you don’t have to rely on the resort staff to take care of the problem. There is legal protection for victims of bed bugs at resorts. In fact, you might be entitled to compensation related to medical bills, pain and suffering and/or other other-of-pocket expenses.
What Legal Compensation is Available For Victims of Bed Bugs in Resorts?
Despite anything that a member of the resort may tell you, you’re entitled to legal compensation if you are a victim of bed bugs. Compensation may include medical bills for treatment, property damage, replacement costs for clothing or other items, and much more. The first thing you should do if you’re a victim of bed bugs in resorts is to contact a lawyer. Other types of compensation you may be entitled to are:
- lost wages from missed work
- fees or penalties from vacations that you had to cut short
- compensation for disfigurement from bed bug bites
- emotional distress
- general pain and suffering
