Under Michigan, the apartment building has the legal duty to make the premises safe for tenants of the building 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 in the building. The failure to provide a safe building can give rise to a lawsuit if a person is injured on the property.
Our lawyers handle a number of different types of lawsuits related to injuries that occur at apartment buildings. These include:
- Slip and fall on snow and ice
- Broken and defective sidewalks
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Lead poisoning
- Fires and smoke inhalation
- Broken and defective steps
- Broken handrails
