Even though private property owners have a legal duty to provide a reasonably safe environment for guests, slip and fall accidents can still happen due to negligence. These accidents can result in traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and other injuries that can cost you tens of thousands of dollars in lost wages and medical bills.
Most private property has property insurance, so a lawsuit can get you the money you need from an insurance company, even if you’ve suffered a serious injury with huge medical expenses. Since slip and fall injury law is so complex, you need an experienced personal injury attorney to handle your case.
A slip and fall lawsuit doesn’t just cover your initial hospital visit. Under Michigan state law, you could potentially win compensation for:
Proving the need for all these things takes time and lots of documentation. Your personal injury law firm’s staff will work with you to gather the evidence you need to win.
Insurance companies don’t want to pay any money that they don’t have to, so they will likely try to contest your claim to reduce the amount that they owe. Under Michigan law, they can try to minimize the amount they have to pay by claiming that your injury was partly your own fault.
They can also try to avoid responsibility entirely by claiming that the property owner was not negligent, and that the accident was entirely unavoidable. You need an experienced personal injury lawyer from our law firm on your side to establish the facts of the case and win.
