A starting point could be to bring the underrated tires to the attention of the dealership. If they agree to the issue you raise and are willing to work with you to remedy the problem, that might be the most cost-effective solution.

The landlord can send you a bill. Nothing prohibits that. If you don't pay, they can sue you. Nothing prohibits that either. If they sue, the court will determine if you have any legal obligation to pay it.

There are arguments either way. They should because as their guest they owed certain duties to you. Offer to pay the cost of a locksmith house call because if all had been calm and had time to wait that's what would have had to be done anyway.

If you gave landlord your forwarding address before you left, landlord must give you an itemized list of any deductions to your security deposit within 30 days. If he did not, then you can sue him for double the amount wrongfully withheld plus your attorney fees. Use the Find a Lawyer tab here on Justia to consult with a local attorney.

The viability of your claim will depend on being able to show the medicine made you sick (as opposed to whatever sickness you already had that led you to take the medicine), as well as the nature and extent of your injuries. You can consult with a local products liability lawyer about your specific situation.
