Our Michigan injury lawyers represent clients who fell on sidewalks and suffered serious injuries. A person injured from fall on a sidewalk that is uneven, raised, or broken can file a claim caused by this defective condition. Under Michigan law, a claim due to the city's failure to maintain the sidewalk can be made when the municipality violates required by Michigan Statute MCL 691.1401, et. seq.
Filing Claims for Trip Injuries Due to an Uneven Sidewalk
A person who fell on a Michigan sidewalk due to a defective condition must provide the governmental notice of the defect and prove that that it existed for at least 30 days prior to the fall. The injury victim must provide written notice to the governmental entity within 120 days of the fall. The failure to provide notice within that time frame will forever bar an injured victim's claim for money damages.
The notice of the injury must specify the exact location and nature of the sidewalk defect, the injury sustained, and the names of the witnesses known at the time by the claimant. When an injury victim chooses our law firm to handle their case, we provide the proper written notice on their behalf to preserve the claim.
