Our Macomb County trip and fall lawyers recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of forty eight year old women who suffered serious injuries due to a defective condition at her apartment complex. The woman was a tenant at the Carlyle Place Apartments in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. She fell due to a cement step that was broken and not properly maintained by the apartment complex. She had made several complaints to the management and maintenance staff before the incident and the condition was never repaired.
Under Michigan law, the apartment complex owner has the legal duty to make the premises safe for tenants of the complex and others who are lawfully on the premises. There is also a statutory duty to keep the building and premises safe for tenants who live at the complex. A person injured at an apartment complex file a lawsuit if a person is injured on the property due to a defective condition.
Due to the broken step, the woman fell and injured her neck and knee. She was required to undergo a surgery to repair the herniated discs in her injured neck. The lawsuit was filed in the Macomb County Circuit Court in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. No date has been set for a jury trial in this matter.
