Understanding Maryland Laws Regarding Bed Bugs

Hotel bed bugs can make overnight stays miserable, but Whitney LLP is ready to help. Whether a hotel is a five-star hotel or a one-star motel, bed bugs do not discriminate. The standard of care remains the same: Hotels are obligated to provide clean and sanitary hotel rooms, free from infestation, whether they are located in Baltimore City, National Harbor or Ocean City, MD. By renting an infested room, the hotel has breached its duty and can end up on the bed bug registry as a result. Guests are entitled to recover damages for their injuries caused by the hotel’s negligence.

Maryland laws regarding bed bugs and other pests require residential apartments to be free of all insect infestations when the lease begins. When landlords lease a bedbug-infested apartment, the tenant and their family can suffer bed bug bites, mental and emotional distress, property damage, and other economic damages. We have successfully recovered compensation for these damages and have helped many clients from Montgomery County to Prince George’s County, MD, break the lease due to a bed bug infestation.

Furniture infested with bed bugs is an unwelcome surprise nobody wants to see when buying or renting furniture for their home. Whether the mattress being sold is new or used, the merchant has a duty to provide a mattress free of bed bug infestation. A merchant selling a used mattress must disclose that it is used, regardless of whether they are selling it in Anne Arundel County or Howard County, MD.

What many people do not know is that the used mattresses that are supplied to the stores for sale are often salvaged straight out of dumpsters and sold to the store for $10 or less per mattress. A new cover is sewn onto the mattress, covering up blood stains, urine stains, and other bodily fluids, as well as bed bug infestations.

What to Know About Bed Bugs in Maryland Lawsuits

Pest Control companies have to properly inspect for and treat all infestations, including bed bugs. When a pest control company fails to properly scan and detect an infestation of bed bugs in an infested home, hotel room, or apartment building, the tenant is left with an infestation that continues to plague them.  Negligent bed bug treatment companies can be held responsible for their poor treatment.

The first step to recovering compensation for bed bug bites is to contact Whitney, LLP, for a free consultation. We know that bed bug cases are valued on more than medical bills and property damage. Bed bug bites often cause ugly and itchy bites, lost time from work, physical scarring, mental anguish, emotional distress, and anxiety. Sometimes, scarring and hyperpigmentation are permanent. We work to recover compensation that reflects the full impact that bed bugs have on your life and your body, as well as for your family.

When cases cannot be settled, we do not hesitate to file a bed bug lawsuit for a Maryland resident when it is in our client’s best interests. Summaries of select bed bug case settlements that we have achieved for our clients are available for review in our Blog section. If you have been forced to experience bed bugs, we are interested in providing representation to you. Unless an alternative agreement is reached, we cover all case expenses and only receive attorney’s fees and recover our costs once we recover compensation for our client.

BED BUG BITES: A GROWING PROBLEM WITH SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES

Bed bugs are a growing and serious epidemic nationwide. Bed bug bites and bed bug infestations are known to cause harm. Physical injuries include intense itching, swelling, disfiguring bite marks, permanent scarring and hyperpigmentation. Mental injuries include anxiety, headaches, high stress levels, sleeplessness, emotional distress, and feelings of helplessness, especially in parents whose children are continually being bitten. Recent studies have proven that bed bugs can transmit Hepatitis B and Chagas disease. Chagas disease is a slow killer, and causes heart disease over a decade after first infecting the body.

Unsuspecting consumers are at risk of all these dangers. Hotels, casinos, apartment complexes, rental furniture companies and used mattress retailers that do not follow industry-standard bed bug inspection and treatment procedures, or worse, who fail to disclose known histories of bed bug infestations in hotel rooms, apartments, or merchandise, cause consumers to be injured and further the spread of bed bug infestations to consumers’ homes.
