Bed Bug Bites in Fort Washington Apartments

Landlords in Fort Washington and Accokeek have an obligation under state law to provide their tenants with clean, safe apartments fit for human habitation. This means they must be free of bed bugs and other harmful infestations. Furthermore, if an infestation is discovered at any time, the landlord must act promptly to take care of it. Unfortunately, some Fort Washington and Friendly landlords fail to abide by their legal obligations. They rent out apartments with bed bug infestations and fail to exterminate the insects when they appear.

As a result of this negligence, the costs borne by Fort Washington and Forest Heights apartment dwellers can escalate rapidly. Residents may need medical attention for their bites as well as ongoing follow-up care. Fort Washington tenants may be forced to throw away expensive items like mattresses, rugs and sofas in the effort to exterminate a bed bug infestation. When landlords violate their legal responsibility, they can be held financially accountable. The bed bug attorneys at Whitney, LLP can work with victims to pursue their bed bug bite claims for damages.

Bed Bugs and Fort Washington Hotel Infestations

When people visit Fort Washington, they may expect to settle in for a restful night in a lodging of their choice. In the case of a hotel infestation, however, the stay may be the opposite of relaxing. Visitors may only discover the infestation when they wake up covered in itchy bed bug bites. They may need immediate medical treatment, and they may also face substantial property losses. Fort Washington tourists may be forced to leave behind their luggage, clothing and other items to avoid bringing the bed bugs back home with them or transferring them to other travelers. Hotel owners in Fort Washington are mandated by state law to provide their guests with safe, clean accommodations free of bed bugs and other hotel infestations, and they can be held responsible for the damages that they cause.

What Should You Do If You Find Bed Bugs in Your Fort Washington Apartment or Hotel?

Bed bugs are nocturnal insects, so it can be difficult to spot them during the day. Many Fort Washington hotel guests and residents discover the bugs after they are bitten, and they may search the area to find evidence of the small black and brown insects. If you find bed bugs in your hotel or apartment, here are some steps you can take:
Document the infestation – Take photos and videos of the bed bugs in your Fort Washington apartment or hotel. You can also take photos of your bites and other damages, and you may even want to save a bug in a small plastic bag.
Report the bed bugs – Go to your landlord or hotel management and report the presence of bed bugs. Demand that they take action to exterminate the insects right away.
Get medical care – If you have been injured by bed bugs, make sure that you get the treatment you need to prevent further damage.
