Our trip and fall injury lawyers filed a lawsuit against the City of Detroit for a defective street. Our client was employed at the Detroit Medical Center and was crossing John R Street in the City of Detroit. As she was walking across the street, she tripped and fell on a defective raised portion in the road. Our client suffered very severe injuries, including a fractured leg that required surgery. The lawsuit was filed against the City of Detroit.
In Michigan, a person injured due to a defective street or roadway has a limited time period to notify the negligent government agency of the defect. These deadlines range from 60 to 120 days after the accident, depending on the agency and defect alleged. The failure to provide that notice may cause dismissal of your case. That is why it is very important for a person injured on a defective street to call a law firm experienced with sidewalk and roadway defects causing trip and fall injuries.
The lawsuit was filed against the City of Detroit in the Wayne County Circuit Court. It seeks damages for the pain and suffering, disability, and recoupment of medical expenses and lost wages. No trial date has been set by the court.
