Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
Unless you have a termination clause you have to keep your lease and pay rent according to that lease unless you find a suitable tenant to replace yourself. The landlord cannot "double dip" and charge you rent if they have another tenant paying rent as well. You can also explain your problem to the landlord and the landlord can also let you out of the lease. To answer your question, you can't get out of the lease in this situation in this circumstance without consequences.
As to the personal injury, it sounds as if the landlord was charging you like a locksmith, this is not personal injury without more evidence. This would be a stretch and a very hard argument to make.
