Our Michigan slip and fall lawyers represent clients who are injured at an apartment complex or on apartment building grounds. This includes both tenants of the apartment complex and guests of tenants visiting the building. We also represent visitors to the complex who are there for business purposes, like utility workers, postal workers, and contractors.
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 a safe premises can give rise to a lawsuit if a person is injured on the property.
Our slip and fall injury lawyers handle a number of different types of lawsuits related to injuries that occur at apartment buildings. These include falls due to snow and ice, broken and defective sidewalks, and defective steps and stairs. We have also handled cases involving broken handrails that come loose off of the wall and cause a person to fall.
If possible, take photographs of the defective or dangerous condition after the fall. 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.
