Well it's not her fault her floors weren't waterproof, she just wanted to turn the place into a waterpark! You'll be thanking her once she lends you the slip 'n' slide.

Definitely not necessarily her fault. There's so many variables involved. AND at the very least, why not have renters insurance?

You can sue if someone damages your property and refuses to pay for the damages, regardless of whether they did it on purpose or not.

@glockinator, with your logic, if I accidentally hit you with my car and break your legs, you can't sue me because it wasn't on purpose.

This is how OP approached her: "Well I woke up to get me a cold pop and then I thought somebody was taking a piss. I said oh lord Jesus it’s a flood. Then I ran out, I didn’t grab no shoes or nothin’ lord Jesus, I ran for my life. And then the water got me wet, I wasn't even horny....ain’t nobody got time for that."

I would think keeping up with maintenance so pipes don't burst would be the landlord's responsibility, along with any related damage.

If you're leasing the apartment and the cause of the leak is a broken pipe (for example) then it would be the owner's responsibility. Either way, I hope you have owners / renters insurance!

This. If you file a claim with your renter's insurance, they'll pay you and then collect from the appropriate parties, whether it's the upstairs tenant (and her renter's insurance, if she has any) or the landlord and his insurance as the owner. If you don't have renter's insurance, you're likely going to be stuck lawyering up and hauling them both into court. Good luck.

That is exactly what I have been trying to say! Alieze people who are saying that's so mean and sue her are people who clearly do not prepare for anything. That's why they have renters insurance and car insurance and all that great stuff.

What are these "Civil Rights" you speak of, 65, I'm sure the local precinct would be delighted with him taking the initiative against crime.
