Michigan Premises Liability Attorneys
Our personal injury attorneys are committed to providing reliable and personalized attention when you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident caused by someone else’s negligence. Under Michigan law, a property owner only has a duty to remedy a defect in property if the defect cannot be seen by casual observation, and therefore easily avoided. This is known as the open and obvious doctrine. If you can see the defect, but are still injured by the defect, you take on responsibility for your own injuries.
Some examples where liability for slip-and-fall accidents has been upheld include:
- Black ice, which is slippery ice that is not visible to the naked eye
- Leaking equipment, where water is not clearly visible
Premises liability can also be established by statute. For example, a landlord has a statutory obligation to provide a safe environment for his or her tenants. That means that the landlord is liable if you suffer a slip-and-fall accident from loose carpet or otherwise poorly maintained common areas. An employer also has an obligation to maintain a safe workplace.
No matter what the circumstances of your slip-and-fall accident, we will fight to protect your rights to compensation for your injuries.
