Michigan Slip on Ice Settlement for Postal Worker At Apartment Complex

Comments (0)

Our slip and fall lawyers recently settled a lawsuit for postal worker injured at a Michigan apartment complex.  The postal worker was delivering mail at a Dearborn apartment complex when she fell due to ice on the parking lot.  She suffered a shoulder injury which required arthroscopic surgery.

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. The failure to provide safe premises can give rise to a lawsuit if a person is injured on the property.

If possible, take photographs of the defective or dangerous condition after the fall at Michigan apatment complex. This will provide great evidence to prove and win your case later on. The complex may repair the condition after your injury so it is best to take photos before any repairs are performed. This helps to demonstrate the dangerous condition to the judge and jury.

We filed a lawsuit against the apartment complex and the apartment management company in the Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit, Michigan.  After attending mediation, the parties agreed to settle the case for $32,500.00.  The medical bills were paid by the worker’s compensation insurance company.
