Michigan slip and fall injuries on snow and ice cause serious injuries. Michigan winters are not only dangerous on the roads, but also are hazardous when walking on sidewalks, porches, and in parking lots. Fall often result in bone fractures, hip injuries, back injuries, as well as traumatic brain injuries . Our law firm has even handled a wrongful death case arising from a fall injury.
Quite often, it is impossible to avoid any icy sidewalk or walkway. Other times, the hazard is not visible because ice is concealed beneath the snow. Finally, the most dangerous condition might be "clear" or "black-ice" because it simply cannot be seen or does not look like an icy condition.
The laws in Michigan for slip and fall on ice cases has changed dramatically over the past few years. Many courts used a judicially created legal rule called the "open and obvious" doctrine to dismiss ice and snow lawsuits, even when the victim has a serious injury. There are several exceptions to this rule so it is still worthwhile to find out if you have a case.
Slip and Fall on Ice & Snow Claims
Claims for slip and fall on ice and snow can be brought against apartment complexes, businesses, and retail establishments. A governmental entity, like a city or county, cannot be sued for failing to clear ice and snow from a public walkway.
