What to do if I was injured at my apartment complex due to property management's negligence?

Question Details:

I fell down steps because no bulb was there and the rubber strip on top step is bowed so I tripped on it. The tenants had asked for all bulbs to be replaced in front and back of building; the front was replaced but only the top 2 floor bulbs in the back stairwell were replaced. One night I decided to go out the back to see friend. However, I first hit the damaged top step and proceeded to fall down approximately 7 steps. To make matters worse, something wet and slippery was on the steps and I was twisted up like a pretzel with my left leg up and behind me. My left leg/knee is swollen and causing me severe pain.
