Our Michigan slip and fall injury lawyers can help you if were injured from a dangerous or defective condition on a public or private property. Fall injuries are common on public sidewalks, parking lots, hospitals, retail stores, malls and at apartment complexes.
Falls often result in very serious injuries, especially to the elderly population who are unable to protect themselves or catch their balance before striking the ground. Common fall injuries include broken bones, facial fractures, knee and shoulder injuries, and traumatic brain injuries.
Under Michigan law, the owner or possessor of property has a legal duty to make the premises reasonably safe for its guests and business invitees. When you are injured from a fall due to a dangerous condition, you can often make an insurance claim or file a slip and fall lawsuit. These cases result in significant settlements.
Slip and fall settlements include compensation for pain and suffering, disfiguring scars, and payment of medical expenses. If you were unable to work due to your injuries after a fall, you are entitled to your lost wages for time missed from work. In cases involving a death, we will file a wrongful death lawsuit for the surviving family members. Let our slip and fall attorneys get started on your case and get you the highest possible settlement amount.
