I had my bathroom ceiling come down on my head on the 11th of November 2014
I've suffered from concussion and have been to the GP witch referred me to the hospital for a brain scan.
I had reported the rapiers that had needed done 3 weeks before it came down do I have a claim.
I've lost vision and am no longer able to look straight up due to needing to be sick even since the ceiling come down.
Generally, the landlord has a duty to make the premises safe and habitable for inhabitants/tenants. You should have a well documented claim. If needed get a local attorney that knows personal injury and landlord tenant law. Send the claim to the landlord. They will send that claim on to their insurance. It might be rejected in which case you'll have to sue if the it works out that the facts warrant it.

Hire a good lawyer and file a claim. You should be able to get your expenses and the damage repaired. I truly sounds like your landlord has failed in his duties to protect and serve his tenant.
Most lawyers will give you a free consultation if you ask for one. We do this all the time, but remember that our time is valuable and you should stay with the people who help you the most.
It sounds like you have a viable claim-particularly if you have received medical treatment. I would contact a local personal injury attorney soon. Make sure you discuss with the attorney if you made prior complaints about the the ceiling or if there were building-wide problems. If the attorney does not ask you about these issues use avvo to find another one.
