This Summer and into this Fall a hot topic being discussed and reported has been America’s battle with bed bugs. Nearly all media outlets from morning news shows and even White House correspondents have commented on the “plague,” of sorts. Charleston Injury Attorneys have taken notice of the widespread reports and injury claims caused by these menacing creatures.
The Baltimore Sun, via the Washington Post, reported that Maryland couple has filed a half-million dollar suit against the owners of their apartment complex. The claim seeks to financially remedy the serious injuries from the itchy welts they, and their toddler, have suffered as well as emotional distress the bed bug infiltration has caused. Apart from the bodily and emotional harm the couple has had to move out of their apartment and discard of furniture and their child's toys. So far this is the only reported suit filed against the complex and it will be interesting to see if more suits are filed against the real estate management company.
