Anne Arundel County Bed Bug lawyer Office building 300x213 - Anne Arundel County Bed Bug Lawyer
Anne Arundel County is located in Maryland. The county seat is Annapolis. Over 537,000 residents live there, with about 25% of the population renting apartments. In Anne Arundel County, apartment landlords and property managers, and hotel owners and operators, must provide apartments and hotel rooms to new tenants and guests free of all infestations, including bed bugs.

Due to the large tourist presence, many hotels and Airbnbs are available to accommodate the year-round influx.  Along with tourists, however, the issue of bed bugs also arises.

WHAT ARE BED BUGS, WHERE ARE THEY FOUND?

There is a very common misconception that bed bugs can only live in dirty living spaces. This is however not the case as bed bugs can live in any type of condition, space, or other living quarters. By latching onto luggage and other carry-on bags, bed bugs can and will infest any living space they find appropriate.

Here are key facts about bed bugs:

  • They have an anticoagulant and an anesthetic in their saliva, so they can bite you without causing pain and drink your blood for minutes at a time, undisturbed
  • The creatures can only move by crawling, which is what primarily distinguishes them from fleas
  • Bed bugs are small, flat, round-bodied, and reddish-brown in color, but they do swell and engorge once they have drunk their fill
  • The insects are usually nocturnal, meaning they often only emerge from their nests at night to feed

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU’VE BEEN BITTEN BY BED BUGS?

You may not even know that you’ve been bitten by bed bugs, depending on how sensitive you are to the bites. Most individuals are moderately sensitive, producing physical responses like swelling, itching, and if some cases, blisters or rashes. These effects may persist for several weeks after the bite has been inflicted. A small handful of individuals suffer through serious complications, such as anaphylaxis, that require urgent medical treatment, as discussed in greater detail below. No matter what sort of physical response you experience, you should see your physician right away to get diagnosed and discuss your care plan.

BED BUG INFESTATION HEALTH RISKS

There are serious health risks associated with bed bug infestations. Examples of health problems that can be caused by bed bug bites include:

  • Anaphylaxis – Anaphylaxis is a severe, rapid-onset, potentially fatal allergic response that affects a small percentage of people in the United States. Often connected with peanuts or bee stings, anaphylaxis can also be triggered by proteins in bed bug saliva, which enters the host’s body while the insect feeds. Warning signs of an anaphylactic reaction include confusion, weakness, nausea, facial swelling, and difficulty breathing.
  • Skin Infections – Open wounds caused by picking or scratching at bed bug bites can trap bacteria and become infected. Secondary bacterial infections associated with bed bug infestations include lymphangitis, cellulitis, and impetigo.

In addition to these physical health issues, bed bug infestations can also cause victims to suffer from emotional distress. Reports of anxiety, depression, and insomnia are common among individuals who have experienced an infestation.

WHO IS LIABLE FOR BED BUGS IN ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY?

Bed bug liability is a complex issue that depends on a number of factors. You should consult an experienced bed bug lawyer in Maryland if you believe that your landlord or other parties could be at fault for your bed bug infestation. In Maryland, apartment units must be free of bed bugs (and other household pests) when the tenant moves into the unit. If a landlord fails to exterminate or disclose an infestation, he or she may be liable for resulting tenant injuries. Similar rules are applicable to hotels and motels.

SUING FOR A BED BUGS IN ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY

The Arnold bed bug attorney at Whitney, LLP research the city, county, and state codes where bed bug infestations occur and injure our clients.   Tenants’ legal rights come from state law, common law, promises made in the lease, and from local laws, such as the county or city code.  The Anne Arundel County Code and the Annapolis City Code are what largely govern landlords with respect to insect-free apartments and hotels in Anne Arundel County.
