Michigan residents who fall due to "black ice" (ice so thin and transparent that it seems invisible) have had their legal right to compensation restored by a recent Michigan Court of Appeals decision. Under the old law, residents who were injured in falls on black ice could not sue the negligent businesses and property owners who failed to salt their properties because the condition was considered "open and obvious." The new case restored the rights of these victims to seek compensation for their injuries.
