    Jonathan’s Answer

    It sounds like the landlord has violated the law.

    I'll make this post quick and simply say if that is in fact the case then it is important that you hire an attorney to help you out. In many cases like yours you can get your attorneys fees paid by the landlord if the landlord broke the law.

    Jonathan’s Answer

    You can. If you were injured I'd be careful about suing for the property damage only.

    I'd recommend you get a copy of the insurance company's "Dec page" which states what the policy limits are. Make sure you get this so the insurance company stays honest.
