Mobile home park bed bug attorney


Mobile home parks are small communities of a few dozen trailers on a piece of land. The communities are generally managed by a park supervisor or the owner himself; he will be responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the common areas of the mobile home park. The trailers themselves, though, are often the responsibility of the families living there. This is simply due to the fact that the trailers are often owned by the families and not rented. However, some park owners may have trailers available for rent, which would effectively make the owners landlords as well as a landowner. They will then be liable for certain issues within the trailers and must be sure to fix anything that is potentially dangerous or threatening. One such issue is the presence of bed bugs; in certain cases, landlords could be held responsible for the eradication of the vermin, but may try to avoid it at all costs. Our team of mobile home park bed bug attorneys at the Downtown LA Law Group can make sure that your home is properly exterminated and that you are legally compensated for damages.

Bed Bug Information

What To Do If You Find Bed Bugs In Your Mobile Home Bed bugs are small creatures that feast on human blood during the night when the hosts are asleep. They are flat and round-bodied, of a dark brown complexion, and get around by crawling. They tend to come out at night to maximize the time they have to drink blood. You may not even be aware of an infestation for some time, given that the bugs can go for months without needing to feast on anything. When they bite their victims, the victims often do not feel anything thanks to the anesthetic present in the saliva of the bed bugs. They are then able to drink for a few minutes at a time while the blood refuses to clot thanks to an anticoagulant present in the saliva as well. The bugs will often make a zigzag pattern as they move around the exposed parts of the body; many people suffer bed bug bites on their arms and bellies. Bites do not usually show up immediately they can take a few hours or even days to manifest, but when they do, they appear as small red welts that are not terribly itchy but may be susceptible to discomfort. In some cases, victims have terribly adverse effects to the bites and have allergic reactions, which can cause immediate health issues. Others will scratch too much and cause the bites to open and turn into festering sores. If you need to identify bed bugs, you should look in damp, dark places, corners, and crevices. You may find them behind electrical outlets, behind baseboards and headboards, in mattress folds, underneath couches and upholstery, inside cushions and pillows, in dresser drawers, and more. The signs of them can include small white eggs in bunches, shed exoskeletons from juveniles bugs, blood stains on sheets, small brown mounds or droppings on the bed and near where victims sleep, and more. If you find the bugs themselves, it is important that you immediately leave and try to keep them contained to one area.

Landlord Responsibility To Tenants

Although many individuals in mobile home parks own their own trailers, not all do and are instead renters. In some states, it is the responsibility of the landlord to clean up and exterminate bed bugs no matter who caused them to enter the home. All tenants are afforded a clean and sanitary living quarters and must not be subjected to filth or contamination. However, at times, the landlord can only be held responsible if he were aware of the infestation prior to a tenant moving in and he chose to do nothing about it, if he caused the infestation, or if he should have been reasonably aware of it as any diligent landlord would have been. Bed bugs may be found in a mobile home if the previous tenant brought them in and then moved out. The landlord could also have furnished the trailer with used furniture from a store without properly inspecting anything or cleaning it. It is important that tenants conduct an investigation themselves to see if there are any bed bugs or signs of bed bugs in the trailer prior to moving in. Once a tenant has moved in, it is much harder to sue a mobile home park for bed bugs. However, you may be able to have a more relevant claim if you found the bed bugs in a common area. For example, the laundry center is usually open to all tenants, and the maintenance of the area is on the park owner. If there are bed bugs found in the center, it is the responsibility of the owner to remove them, and he could be liable for any ensuing damages that come from the creatures or any infestations.

What To Do If You Find Bed Bugs In Your Mobile Home

If you find bed bugs in your mobile home, you should take steps to make sure you are safe, free from additional harm, and have adequate evidence to file a claim. Firstly, you should locate the bed bugs or signs of them and take as many photos and videos as you can. This will allow you to keep a record of the bugs without having to keep the furniture or not exterminate the house. You can also take pictures of your bites and the injuries you suffered as a result. You should then gather all the medical notes, hospital receipts, doctor’s notes, and more that you got when you went to the doctor for medical treatment. You should always make sure to go to the hospital or see a physician after being bitten. It is extremely important for many reasons. For one, even though bed bugs may not carry certain diseases, they can still cause infections, and it is much better to be healthy than to take the risk. Further, if you do not get medical treatment quickly, the insurance agent can claim that you were obviously bitten elsewhere or that the problem was caused by you and not your landlord. Once you have found the bed bugs and taken photos of them, you should alert your landlord to the problem. He may not believe he is liable for any extermination, but you can double check to make sure he is on the hook. It is highly recommended that you call a skilled mobile home bed bug attorney to help you with your case if you feel that your landlord is responsible for the damages caused by the infestation and is refusing any help or assistance. We can make sure that you are fairly treated by your landlord.
