I fell on a defective step in the lobby of the apartment where I live. I sustained abrasions to my knees. If I sue my landlord, will I be evicted? What guarantee do I have that I will not be forced out of my apartment if I sue the landlord.
There are so many "depends on" in place., You may be able to sue your landlord for personal injuries, including pain and suffering, caused by the defective steps. Keep in mind suing may risk your tenancy. Consider how serious your injuries are and if you have somewhere to live... just in case.
