A family is suing a hotel near Chicago’s O’Hare airport after allegedly encountering bed bugs in the hotel, suffering from bed bug bites, and bringing bed bugs home with them. CBS 2 reports,
The suit, which names First Hospitality Group, Inc., Holiday Inn Select-Chicago O’Hare and Rosemont RREF, LLC as defendants, claims the Holiday Inn failed to exterminate the infestation, and knowingly rented the room anyway.
It also claims the family ended up taking the bugs home with them, leading to an infestation of their own.
The incident caused physical and psychological injuries, medical expenses, pain and suffering and loss of wages, the suit alleges. It also caused the family to spend “unnecessary time and expenses” in attempts to get rid of the bugs in their home.
The suit asks for more than $50,000 in damages.
