Michigan Sidewalk Injury Attorneys
The law once presumed a condition safe if there was less than a two-inch defect in a walkway, which meant that it was difficult for lawyers to bring many claims related to sidewalk injuries. However, Michigan law has recently changed. Cities now have a statutory duty to maintain sidewalks. When they fail to do so, the lawyers at Bredell & Bredell hold them accountable for related injuries.
Trip and falls on defective sidewalks can result in very serious injuries:
- Broken bones/bone fractures
- Hip injuries
- Back injuries
- Head injuries/brain injuries
- Wrongful death
These injuries occur on sidewalks and trails, in crosswalks and parking lots and other places where pedestrians walk. Many of them are related to slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents that are the result of broken and cracked city sidewalks. Others are the result of hidden ice or deep snow that was not properly removed from sidewalks.
Based out of our central office in Ypsilanti, the attorneys at Bredell & Bredell strive to offer our Michigan clients quality service and effective legal counsel in sidewalk injury cases. Our focus is on helping personal injury victims obtain the compensation they deserve for their injuries.
