Bethesda, MD, is part of Montgomery County, which is located very close to the nation’s capital. Home to the National Institutes of Health and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, tourists and business travelers flock to Bethesda for visits. With 63,374 residents, many Bethesda dwellers commute to Washington, D.C., for work or to serve in one of the major institutions located directly in the community. With the Bethesda Metro Center station bringing the Red Line to the town, it is a great location for people from nearby communities like Rockville and Chevy Chase. With such an active business and governmental community, around one-third of the households in Bethesda are occupied by renters.

However, bed bug bites can be a real problem for tenants and guests at Bethesda apartments and hotels. These pesky insects can strike anywhere, regardless of the price or quality of the accommodations. Bed bug infestations can be severely devastating. A bed bug bite is itchy and red, and some victims may suffer scarring as a result of the welts and associated scratching. Furthermore, it is extremely difficult to entirely eradicate bed bugs. People may lose thousands of dollars in property because of the carelessness of a landlord or hotel operator.

Bed Bugs in Apartments in Bethesda, MD

Landlords in the state of Maryland have a legal responsibility to ensure that the apartments they rent are free of insect infestations, including bed bugs. They cannot lease out an apartment infested with bed bugs. However, some landlords do not live up to their obligations, and the results can be severely damaging to Bethesda residents. People may be forced to leave their homes and even give up thousands of dollars in upholstered furniture due to the threat of lingering bed bugs. This comes in addition to the physical injuries caused by bed bug bites themselves. Bed bugs are linked to psychological and physical harm as well as costly property damage.

In addition, landlords are responsible for exterminating bed bug infestations discovered after an initial lease. They must take action promptly to address the issue and remove the damaging insects. When they fail to do so, they can also be held responsible for this breach of their legal obligations. At Whitney, LLP, our skilled bed bug attorneys have recovered over $11 million for people injured in bed bug bite claims.

As a result, they may be forced to throw away expensive luggage and valuable clothing to avoid bringing the bed bugs back home with them.

Hotel owners in Rockville and Bethesda may not rent out rooms that are infested with insects. They have a responsibility to ensure they are providing safe, clean accommodations for their guests. If they rent rooms with bed bugs, hotels in Bethesda can be held accountable for the costly damages that can accrue as a result.
