So I live in this apartment complex that is what one might call a bit “run down.” It’s not terrible, but it’s not the classiest joint in town either. In February the Maintenance Manager totaled my car by backing into me with his truck. The complex manager tried to tell me it was my fault, and offered me $200 off my next month’s rent. I ended up filing it with my insurance and the complex insurance paid out my car.
So here’s the newest fiasco - a couple of months ago I called the office to tell them the stairs leading off of my balcony were in need of repair. A couple of the treads were loose. Well yesterday when I was taking my dog out, the treads gave out. While I was standing on them. I didn’t fall all the way through because I was able to grab the hand rail, but I pulled a bunch of muscles in my arm, and I landed on some nails from where the tread had come loose. I’m all bruised up and I have a few puncture wounds on my thigh (nothing serious though). I went to the immediate care center, and I fully intend to have the complex pay for that visit.
Do any of you have any suggestions as to what I could do? I’m having the construction guys at work see if they can find any codes on stairs and structural stuff.
In the meantime I’ll sit here and stew over how much I want to move.
