What is the Statute of Limitations For A Slip and Fall Case?

Our Michigan slip and fall lawyers represent individuals who have suffered injuries from slip and fall accidents due to broken sidewalk, black ice, slippery floor, and other dangerous conditions. Many of these injuries are very significant and include broken bones, hip fractures, serious orthopedic injuries, back injuries, neck injuries, and head and brain injuries.

Under Michigan law, the owner or the possessor of property has a duty to make the premises reasonably safe for its invitees. The failure to take proper preventative action often leads to serious injuries.

Property owners usually deny responsibility for failing to make property safe and blame the injury victim. Our Michigan slip and fall lawyers will step in to hold them accountable for your injuries. Sometimes these falls can even result in death, which may give rise to a Michigan wrongful death claim.

Michigan Slip and Fall Statute of Limitations

In Michigan, a person injured in a slip and fall accident must generally file a lawsuit within three years of the date of the accident under the statute of limitations.

If you fail to meet these deadlines, your case will be destroyed forever and you cannot sue for your injuries.

It is essential that you contact an experienced Michigan accident and injury lawyer as soon as possible so that you do not lose your rights to a fair settlement.

Can The Slip and Fall Statute of Limitations Be Extended?

In Michigan slip and fall cases involving minors or legally incapacitated persons, the limitations periods can often be extended beyond the three year period.
