Wyandotte Premises Liability Settlement - Defective Stairs

Our Michigan premises liability lawyers recently settled a case for a woman who suffered serious injuries due to a defective condition at her apartment complex in Wyandotte.  She was descending the stairs and stepped into a hole in the pavement at the bottom of the stairs.  The area had poor lighting and she was unable to see the hole before stepping into it.  She suffered a fractured fibula which required surgery and an internal fixation device.  She received a settlement of $74,000 and the case was settled before a lawsuit was filed.  The insurance company for the apartment complex paid the settlement.
