My rental agreement with my landlord specifies that he is responsible for maintaining the gardening and landscape for the house I rent. In the past two months, he has been by only twice to perform these duties. My front walkway and porch are littered with fallen leaves which he is responsible for removing. I slipped on the dried leaves and fell chin first into the yard's chain link fence and metal posts cutting open my chin and sustaining neck and back injuries as well as contusions to my knees, hands and wrists. As a result I missed 3.5 days of work and continue to suffer from neck and back pain. What is my best recourse for recovering damages outside of hiring a personal injury attorney?
