It sounds as though you live in a rental.  If that's so, management has a duty to keep the property safe.  If you told them about the water issue and they've failed to address it, then they've likely breached that duty and you may have a personal injury claim for damages.  The statute of limitations to file a claim is 2 years in Texas, but it's best to speak with a Texas personal injury attorney who can evaluate your situation and discuss your options.
