Our Michigan slip and fall lawyers obtained a $100,000 settlement on behalf of a woman who suffered serious injuries due to black ice in a parking lot. The woman was attending an event at a local social hall and slipped and fell on ice after leaving her vehicle. She suffered a back injury which required treatment and has disabled her from many activities.
A lawsuit was filed and the parking lot owner filed legal briefs asking the trial court to dismiss the case under Michigan's open and obvious laws. The judge denied their request and the case settled prior to trial after a lengthy mediation.
