If you or a family member were injured in a fall, physical assault, or an accident caused by a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property, the owner of the property may be liable for your injuries. The Grand Blanc premises liability lawyers at Jakeway Injury Law aggressively fight for your rights and work to hold the negligent property owner responsible for your damages.

Common Premise Liability Injuries

Personal injuries suffered on another’s property are often the result of negligent maintenance, inadequate security, or another dangerous condition. Our Grand Blanc premises liability attorneys seek compensation for clients injured in private homes, on sidewalks, hotels, apartment complexes, parks, and commercial properties.

We represent clients with injuries caused by:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Broken stairs
  • Wet or hazardous floors
  • Falling merchandise
  • Broken handrails
  • Elevator accidents
  • Uneven sidewalks
  • Icy parking lots
  • Other dangerous or hazardous conditions

After a premises liability injury, you should notify the property owner of your injury and file a report with the property owner or manager. Be sure to get a copy of the report for your records. You should always seek medical treatment for your injury. After your injury has been treated, you may want to contact an attorney to learn if you have a legal claim.

Premise Liability Claims in Michigan

Michigan has certain laws and rules for premises liability claims. The status of the injury victim influences the liability of the property owner. For example, an individual must have been on the property legally, either as a customer, on public property, or invited to the property, either by invitation of the property owner or for commercial purposes.

Under Michigan law, property owners are required to:

  • Maintain reasonably safe conditions
  • Take measures to protect visitors from injury
  • Warn people of potential dangers or hazardous conditions
  • Routinely check for dangers

If you were injured on someone else’s property, you may be able to obtain compensation for the damages related to their injuries. Depending on the specifics of the injury, you may be eligible for compensation for your medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages. We can evaluate your situation and explain how the law applies to your case.
