A woman who received more than 400 bed bug bites during her stay at San Francisco’s Hotel has received $71,000 to settle her claim against the downtown hotel. The out-of court settlement is the largest ever paid to victims in similar bed bug-attack cases.
According to the City Star: The woman, who wants to remain anonymous, spent three nights at the downtown hotel in October 2005. During her stay, she noticed small blood stains on bed linens and discovered several insect bites on her face and body. She mentioned the “bug problem” to the hotel’s concierge when she checked out.
Within a week, her face and body was covered with hundreds of bite marks, causing intense itching. She sought medical treatment and was told that it could take up to 10 days for her skin to fully react to the bed bug bites and related irritants, including bug feces.
A few weeks after the insects had a blood orgy on the woman’s sleeping body, she developed “steroid acne,” after treatment for the bites. Nine months later was diagnosed with dermographism, a skin condition where you can, more or less, write on your own skin.
Three women who allege they had been bitten over 100 times have settled out of court. Nichole Eatman, Vera Domini and Regina Martocci said they met with representatives for the Rodeway Inn, Glendale California and have reached a settlement for an undisclosed amount. –5/2/11 Glendale News-Press
