Legionella Pneumonia Risk from Hotel Hot Tubs

Free Lawsuit Consult for Legionnaires’ Disease Victims

Breathing in water mist that is contaminated with Legionella bacteria can cause Legionnaires’ disease, a severe form of pneumonia. Because Legionella bacteria quickly colonize in warm water, hotel hot tubs that are not cleaned and disinfected properly can become contaminated.

Attorney Fred Pritzker represents Legionnaires’ disease victims nationwide. In a recent wrongful death case against a hotel, he won a $3,000,000.00 settlement for the family. “Our client lost his wife because hotel management did not take adequate measures to prevent Legionella contamination,” said Fred. “Making sure that the hot tub has the right disinfectant and pH levels is essential, clearly that was not done in this case.”

If you are diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease, you need to contact your health department. If you visited a hotel within 14 days of getting sick, you need to also contact the local or state health department where the hotel is located.  You can contact Fred and his Bad Bug Law Team regarding this. If an investigation links your illness to the hotel, you have the right to seek compensation with a Legionnaires’ disease lawsuit against the hotel.

4 Questions to ask before Using a Hotel Hot Tub

  1. What was the most recent health inspection score for your hotel’s hot tub?
  2. Are disinfectant and pH levels checked at least twice per day by someone trained to do it?
  3. Are disinfectant and pH levels checked more often when the hot tub is being used by a lot of people?
  4. Are the following hot tub maintenance activities performed regularly: a) removal of the slime or biofilm layer by scrubbing and cleaning; b) replacement of the hot tub water filter according to manufacturer’s recommendations; and c) replacement of hot tub water (how often?).
