Premises Liability and Slip and Fall Cases


Premises liability claims (including slip and fall) arise when someone is injured because of the negligence of a storeowner or landowner. The law in Michigan is clear that the owner or possessor of property (whether it is a parking lot, supermarket, retail store, or sidewalk) has a duty to maintain their property so that it is free of dangerous conditions, or must warn others of such conditions rendering property dangerous. If they fail to meet this duty, the injured person likely has a lawsuit for all their medical and out-of-pocket costs, lost past and future wages, and compensation for pain and suffering.


Insurance companies routinely fight hard against paying just compensation for people who have been injured in a slip and fall accident. Often, insurance companies will even argue that the injured person “should have seen” the dangerous condition and been able to avoid it.
