What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Texas. I tripped and fell over a "wheel stop" and landed on my left shoulder, requiring surgery. I retained an Atty. and sued my Apt. complex for not placing them in proper alignment to parking space. It is under a carport and dark--no lighting. Lease has a "cannot sue" clause. Atty. says that may be a problem. I say Apts. were negligent, because after two other people tripped, they moved them a bit. I think I should still be able to sue for restitution and pain and suffering. Any thoughts?
