Slip & Fall
Did unsafe conditions cause you to slip or fall on someone else’s property?
You may be entitled to compensation for lost wages and/or medical bills.
Under Michigan law, it is the duty of the person or company owning or possessing the premises or property to make sure the area is reasonably safe. You need an experienced personal injury attorney to hold the property owner accountable.
To successfully litigate a slip and fall case, we must be able to prove the following four elements:
- You must have a serious injury, proven by a physician.
- You must prove the existence of the dangerous condition directly caused your slip or fall that resulted in the injury.
- You must prove the property owner must have known about the condition and failed to correct the problem or warn of the situation.
- You must prove that you were not a trespasser.
The law in premises liability cases has become quite complex due to many past decisions of the Michigan Supreme Court and Michigan Court of Appeals. Now more than ever, it is imperative you obtain an experienced attorney who knows how to evaluate the case and knows how represent you.
