Hilton Hotels Bed Bug Lawyers & Attorneys
Hilton Hotels, now known as Hilton Hotels & Resorts is a worldwide brand of high end hotels and resorts. Hilton Hotels & Resorts is Hilton’s flagship brand, one of the largest brands in the world targets mostly business and leisure travelers with properties in many major cities, convention centers, and famous vacation destinations globally. Even a brand as recognizable as the Hilton, can be subject to problems, especially a growing one such as bed bug infestations.
The parent company Hilton Hotels & Resorts, doesn’t only consist of the Hilton brand, but can also include any of the following hotels (Important to understand when considering a lawsuit).
- Embassy Suites
- Hilton Garden Inn.
- Hampton Inn
- Waldorf Astoria
- And More
This company has locations in close to 80 countries and around 550 hotel locations worldwide. These hotels are typically known for quality, but this doesn’t make a difference when it comes to it being prone to a bed bug infestation. If any location doesn’t practice heavily regulated and strict safety practices to target and destroy bed bugs properly, these insects will quickly spread to additional rooms.
What are Bed Bugs?
These are small insects (typically brown with a rounder shape) that tend to hide in dark spaces. These bugs are active and typically move around at night, you’ll usually find them in the following areas
- In between sheets in a mattress, or along the seems
- Behind wall hangings
- Along baseboards and walls
It is best practice that before any stay at a hotel, you do a quick scan for bed bugs in the room.
What Symptoms do Bed Bugs Cause?
Bed Bug bites typically look like mosquito bites, although they’re usually in higher numbers and can be inflamed if there is an allergic reaction. Most humans react in similar ways to these bites, experience mild to severe itching and irritation of the skin. There are situations of people who have more severe reactions and act more intensely to a bite, up to the point of fainting or trouble breathing.
Bed Bugs can also transmit diseases such as Chagas disease. This disease is potentially life threating and has infected close to 7 million people worldwide according to the World Health Organization. Although this disease is found mainly in Latin American countries there are cases of it being transmitted in the U.S.
This disease presents itself in two phases
Phase 1 (Acute Phase) – This lasts for about two months after infection. At this point symptoms are often mild and not very specific. You’ll have some skin lesions or purple swelling of the eye lids.
Phase 2 (Chronic Phase) – During this phase, the parasites are hidden mainly in the heart and digestive muscles. This can lead to cardiac disorders or digestive problems. In the later years this infection can lead to sudden death and heart failure from gradual deconstruction of the heart and nervous systems.
