Seeking Compensation For Victims Of Toxic Mold And Bed Bugs
Nobody wants to live in a place with mold. Excessive mold in your apartment can cause more than a nasty smell or unsightly stain on the wall or ceiling. It can give you or your family serious allergic reactions like breathing trouble, asthma, lung inflammation and scarring.
If you are dealing with mold or bed bugs, you might qualify for substantial compensation from your landlord for your medical bills, lost wages and other damages. But getting the compensation you deserve can be complicated. At Thomas R. Breeden, P.C., our lead attorney, Tom Breeden, has practiced landlord-tenant law for more than 30 years. Our team will work together to provide you with top-notch representation and a resolution that helps make you and your family safe and healthy again.
A Legal Duty To Remove Excess Mold
Under Virginia law, when you discover toxic mold in your apartment, it is your landlord’s responsibility to remove it. But many landlords in Manassas and throughout northern Virginia resist their legal obligations. They would rather expose you and your children to dangerous mold spores than pay to remove them. Or they will paint over the stain and claim to have solved the problem.
Your family’s health is too important to put up with a landlord’s greed. Our firm will help you fight to hold your landlord accountable for their duty to keep your rental home in a “fit and habitable condition.” We also represent homeowners who discover mold in their newly constructed houses and seek compensation from the contractor.
Bedbugs And Virginia Apartments, Hotels
Bedbugs are a huge annoyance that can be difficult to remove from your home. They particularly affect people who travel frequently or live in a hotel. A landlord or hotel owner who allows bedbugs to spread to multiple units has failed to keep the property in a fit and habitable condition. Our firm works with tenants to help make their landlords take care of bedbug infestations.
