Hotel Insurance: How to Sleep Tight Because Your Guests Are

There are many hotels around the country that have been infested with the nasty problem of bed bugs. These bed bugs are a growing problem for hotel owners and customers alike. A horrifying incident of a bed bug infestation lawsuit is the Mathias v. Accor Economy Lodging, Inc. case. A brother and sister were sleeping in a Motel 6 in Chicago when the brother woke during the night, only to discover bugs fleeing from his body when he lifted the sheets off of himself. When they turned on the light, it was reported that the bugs were seen on the beds, furniture and walls. When asked to be transferred to a different hotel, they were only moved to a different room on the same floor. The brother and sister were awarded $372,000 in punitive damages because of the bed bug infestation.
