SLIP & FALL /
TRIP & FALL ACCIDENTS

Accidents that occur on another party's property are caused by the property owner's negligence. If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident, you may be able to collect compensation for your losses, including medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. According to Michigan law, you have only 3 years to file a claim for your injury before the statute of limitations expires.

Because laws governing these types of accidents are very complex, many law firms don't take these cases. However, attorney Todd J. Stearn knows these laws well and can often find liability that other lawyers cannot. Many attorneys refer such cases to the Law Offices of Todd J. Stearn, P.C., because of our success in this area of law.

ACCIDENTS ON PRIVATE, COMMERCIAL & PUBLIC PROPERTY

Whether you are injured on private or public property, you may hold the owner liable for negligence. Our firm also has experience with complex cases involving injuries from accidents occurring on city and county property. Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents are among the most common personal injury cases.

Some of the most common causes of these accidents include: 

  • Uneven flooring

  • Slick surfaces

  • Foreign objects

  • Lack of signage or warnings

  • Inadequate lighting

  • Defective handrails or steps

  • Damaged pavement or sidewalks

 

In Michigan, black ice is also a frequent cause of these accidents, especially in places such as gas stations and parking lots. Other retail locations, including grocery stores and convenience stores, are common sites of slip-and-fall accidents as well and can result in a claim being filed against the property owner.

 

These types of accidents can happen on nearly any type of property, including apartment complexes, restaurants, and neighborhood homes.
