Batavia, NY asked in Landlord - Tenant and Personal Injury for New York

Q: I need to know how to fight my landlord. for personal injury and bad living condition

she has yet to fix my staircase which I fell down and have paperwork showing it caused a concussion and shoulder injury. I now deal with a traumatic brain injury which built up to much fluid and I'm on medication for the migraines. I also have a leak in my roof that is causing the ceiling to sag in my daughters room. she has been violated as of today for the staircase and roof by code enforcement and she is trying to sell the property so she doesn't have to fix it. I believe I am entitled to some type of compensation for my health issues due to her negligence.
