The recent cold winter weather and snow has brought a number of new cases to our offices relating to slip and fall injuries on icy sidewalks at Michigan apartment complexes. When you rent an apartment, you expect that the complex maintenance staff will apply salt to the sidewalks, walkways, steps, and parking lots to prevent injuries. Unfortunately, many apartment complexes do not take this seriously and tenants have been suffering very serious injuries due to falls on ice, especially on black ice which is virtually impossible to see before it is encountered. By then, it is often too late.
If you were injured at a Michigan apartment complex due to a fall on ice, you should contact our firm immediately. Also, if possible, take pictures of the injury scene or have someone do it for you so that you can prove that the area was icy and not salted before your injury.
