Family Law Attorneys Fight for Families

Many parents fail to realize that they are still co-parents even after a divorce. This means no matter what their feelings are toward each other, their goals should always be geared toward the best interests of their children. I am an attorney practicing family law, and I see parents every day who have forgotten that children should always come first. I hope that this blog will remind people that kids can be terribly hurt when their parents get divorced and that it is up to the adults in their lives to provide a secure foundation where they can feel safe and know that they are cared for. Children are often innocent victims of divorce. Learn how to protect your kids.

Two Reasons You Could File A Claim Due To A Bed Bug Infestation

Slipping out after dark and making your blood a midnight treat, there is hardly a pest that brings about as much disconcert as a bed bug. These sneaky little blood suckers like to take up residence in the worst possible place in your home: Your bed. Bed bugs can come from all kinds of places, from hotels to visitors packing over a few extra guests. Unfortunately, you can come across bed bug problems whether you ever travel or not, if you never have company over, and even if you wrap yourself in plastic every time you leave the house. There are a few ways you can end up with bed bugs that could be completely beyond your control. 

You buy new furniture and end up with more than just a bargain. 

When you walk into a furniture store and make your selections, the last thing you will expect to have delivered to your home with the purchase is a bed bug infestation. However, there have been cases popping up all over the country in which customers have had this experience. One such case led a mother of twin boys to sue a furniture store after discovering the brand new bunk beds and mattresses she had just purchased were teeming with the creepy critters and even causing her children skin irritations.

Be especially careful about buying new furniture in stores where used furniture is also housed, which is often where the contamination issues comes into play. If you buy furniture and get bed bugs along with the delivery, make sure you talk to an attorney to find out if there is anything you can do. 

You move into a new place and a there are a few small-in-stature tenants hanging around. 

If a landlord is notified that a unit has a bed bug problem or even if they suspect that there are bed bugs in one of their homes, it is their duty to exterminate the area and let future tenants know about previous issues. If you move into a new place that already has bed bugs inside and you were never informed of the problem, there may be something you can do legally.

One tenant in the state of Maryland successfully sued her landlord after inheriting a bed bug infestation with her new residence. She was eventually awarded $800,00 to cover her losses and injuries due to the bed bug bites, $650,000 of which was in punitive damages.
