There are instances in which a landlord can be held liable for a tenant’s slip and fall. Your attorney will have to prove that your landlord, like other property owner's, was aware of the condition of the property that led to your injury and chose not to fix it. This is especially true for a fall that occurs in the common area of an apartment building.

You may also be able to hold them responsible for a slip and fall within your apartment, if you can prove that the landlord knew about the condition of the apartment and did not give you, the tenant, proper warning.
