About bed bug bites

Bed bug bites go beyond the relatively superficial symptoms of mosquito bite-like welts on the skin and the accompanying itching. They can cause serious problems to your health and can be particularly traumatic for children or people with underlying health conditions.

Some people may require medical intervention and medication, while for those psychologically affected, counselling or therapy may be an essential step in attempting to recover fully.

A hotel’s responsibilities

If you book a hotel stay and the whole experience is ruined - perhaps for your entire family - by bed bugs, you may be able to make a claim.

Claims can be made either against the hotel directory or through the tour operator that arranged the stay. The amount of compensation will depend on the level of suffering, extent of infestation and total lost earnings. However, in cases where the infestation has travelled in luggage from the hotel to the claimant’s home, settlements are likely to be considerably higher than in claims for ruined holidays alone.

How YouClaim can help

We have the experience and knowledge to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for having to sleep in unhygienic conditions with bed bugs, and also for any subsequent physical or psychological effects you felt. At YouClaim, we work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis, meaning you are fully protected should your case be unsuccessful.

Our service is commended by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, so you can rest assured you’re picking the right team when it comes to making a compensation claim.
