The Waldorf-Astoria hotel is being sued by a Michigan couple, Christine and David Drabicki. The Drabickis claim the bedbugs hitched a ride home with them and infected their two daughters after their stay at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel. Alan Schnurman, their lawyer, said the couple went there for a conference and ended up with bedbugs!
According to reports, the Drabickis filed the lawsuit on Thursday, stating that they had suffered a series of mishaps after their home became infested with bedbugs! That wasn't the worst that happened to the Drabickis. Apparently, Christine Drabicki's two daughters became infected with bedbugs and one of them even suffered an allergic reaction.
Christine Drabicki stated, "It wreaked havoc on us!" She wants the hotel to compensate them for the pain and suffering they went through. In the hotel's defense, inspectors combed the room for bedbugs and didn't find any. However, Christine and David Drabicki aren't the only people suing the hotel for bedbug issues. Susanne Igneri is also suing the hotel over bedbugs!
Her story is uncanny in the similarities it has with the Drabicki's. It's difficult to imagine that a hotel will allow guests to sleep in their establishment knowing that they have a bedbug infestation issue. Unfortunately, when it comes to money, sacrificing the comforts of a few guests seem to be okay.
However, when the hotel is facing more than one lawsuit over the same issue, one can bet apples there are bedbugs in that hotel! Ask any housekeeper or exterminator how often they're called in to deal with these little monsters and it's a certainly, you will not want to know the awful truth!
The issue with bedbugs is not confined to New York. Bedbugs are becoming a huge problem across the country. The battle against these nasty insects have cost the U.S. at least $250 million since 2006. If it's costing that much to deal with bedbugs alone, one can safely say the U.S. has a very big problem indeed!
As for the Drabickis and the Igneris, it's highly doubtful they will ever stay at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel again.
