The owner of a property has a duty to exercise ordinary care to protect people from unreasonable risks of injury. If a person falls, slips, or trips upon a condition that is considered to be unreasonably dangerous, that person may be entitled to recover compensation for bodily injures as well as other damages sustained, including economic losses and damages. Again, this is a common challenge for residents and business owners located in Michigan during the winter months.
Slip and falls can lead to very serious injuries ranging from fractures, neck, and back injuries to traumatic brain injuries. Medical bills can quickly grow, potentially causing financial hardships for consumers that can include bankruptcy. Under some circumstances, a slip and fall may be considered the fault of the property owner. However, there is a fine distinction as to when a property owner is at fault rather than the individual such as a defect or condition on the property that is visible.
Michigan law regarding slip and falls can be complicated. What is clear though is the financial burden on the injured party can be debilitating.
