Apartment water leakage from above floor Apartment water leakage from above floor

I live on the 3rd floor of the apartment and there is water seepage from the 4th floor apartment bathroom into our bathroom causing damage to walls, windows etc. The 4th floor owner is not co-operating in fixing the problem, is there a legal way to handle this issue ?
