Thank you for following up with me.
Under chapter 704 of Wisconsin's landlord-tenant law and the conditions of the property that you have described that have made it hazardous for your health you can by law withhold rent, notify your intent to the landlord to terminate the lease and sue the landlord in the civil court for past rent.
The statute on tenability outlines your rights and I will include it here for your reference:
4) Untenantability. If the premises become untenantable because of damage by fire, water or other casualty or because of any condition hazardous to health, or if there is a substantial violation of sub. (2) materially affecting the health or safety of the tenant, the tenant may remove from the premises unless the landlord proceeds promptly to repair or rebuild or eliminate the health hazard or the substantial violation of sub. (2) materially affecting the health or safety of the tenant; or the tenant may remove if the inconvenience to the tenant by reason of the nature and period of repair, rebuilding or elimination would impose undue hardship on the tenant. If the tenant remains in possession, rent abates to the extent the tenant is deprived of the full normal use of the premises. This section does not authorize rent to be withheld in full, if the tenant remains in possession. If the tenant justifiably moves out under this subsection, the tenant is not liable for rent after the premises become untenantable and the landlord must repay any rent paid in advance apportioned to the period after the premises become untenantable. This subsection is inapplicable if the damage or condition is caused by negligence or improper use by the tenant.
Past paid rent up to $10,000 could be sought in the small claims court.
In relation to your other injuries, you could take a civil action against the landlord but your success in the action would really depend on the proximity of the landlord's negligence and the injuries you sufferred.
You should undertake an in person consultation with a local lawyer in relation to these.
The action for past rent can be done pro se. You should give the landlord written notice of your dissatisfaction and require him to find you another residential property until he repairs the current.
