I was carrying a couple oxygen tanks up the stairs when my sandals slipped under the rug edge which pitched me forward, the tanks swung me around which caused me to fall backwards onto the step the goes up into the neighboring condo. I now have back damage. One disc has very minor posterior bulging but the lower disk has diffuse posterior bulging with a small disc protrusion. I was told it would never heal back to what it was and that I would probably have problems the rest of my life. Since this happened they have checked all the condo landings and I know they have fixed at least 15 of them. I've never been one to sue anybody but this is going to be a life long issue. I'm only 57. What if I don't have insurance that lasts till I'm 65 and can get Medicare?Thank you so much for answering my question. Yes I took a couple pictures. I walk on this everyday for the past 9 years to get into my front door. I thought it was glued down, I didn't realize that over the years it caused the glue to deteriorate and become unstuck. They never had a metal strip where the rug met the top step which would have kept it tacked down even if the glue failed. If I knew there was a problem I would have brought it to the board. I hate that I have talked to the president twice and both times she acted surprised I had a fall. She told the management company that I "almost" fell but caught myself. I emailed the management company and cc'd her saying that is not what I told her. Thank you again. These are not large oxygen tanks, total weight is only 8# 4oz. 14 inches long. I had them in a bag over my shoulder. I don't know if this makes a difference, but they are not large or heavy, but when they slung forward from tripping it got me off balance.
