A woman reportedly encountered bed bugs while staying at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim last April and her attorney filed a lawsuit on Tuesday. Ivy Eldridge is suing Disneyland Hotel for failing to get rid of bedbugs that left her with welts and bite marks.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Eldridge’s attorney filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court and provided photos that show red bite marks on her shoulders, neck, back and ears.
Eldridge is seeking punitive damages, in addition to damages for physical and mental suffering, but the lawsuit does not include a specific dollar amount. The LA Times reported that the lawsuit says Eldridge “endured many sleepless nights and much emotional and mental distress, coupled with other physical conditions associated with severe mental and emotional distress.”
The lawsuit names Walt Disney Co., Walt Disney Parks and Resorts and Disneyland Hotel and says that Disneyland Hotel was aware it had a bed bug problem and failed to do anything about it.
A Victoria’s Secret model had a similar experience while staying at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Palm Desert in Palm Springs, California this past June. She claimed she was “massacred” by bedbugs and sued the hotel. Bed bugs are probably the last problem you want to deal with when staying at a hotel or resort, but there are ways to avoid these harmful critters and measures you can take if you do come across them.
