Ann Arbor Slip and Fall Lawyers

Our Ann Arbor slip and fall lawyers represent clients who have suffered serious injuries from a fall.  Cases include when a person slips on substance and falls, trips over a hazard and falls, or steps into a hazard and falls down. In any circumstance, it is necessary to determine the nature of the defect that caused the fall. We will fully investigate the cause of your fall to determine whether you are legally entitled to pursue a claim under Michigan law.

The injuries from an Ann Arbor fall are often serious and required surgery and other extensive medical treatment.  Many our clients have suffered broken and fractured bones, back and neck injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even death. We have tremendous track record of settlements and verdicts in slip and fall cases throughout the entire State of Michigan.

Some common types of slip and fall and trip and fall cases result from:

  • Ice and snow, including black ice
  • Spilled substances and food on store aisles and floors
  • Hidden electrical cords or cords extending across aisles and steps
  • Cracked or broken sidewalks
  • Broken handrails or loose stair handrails
  • Defective steps and stairways
  • Defective parking lots with holes and loose gravel
  • Elevator and Escalator accidents
  • Inadequate lighting and poor lighting

The most important part of your case is to prove that the condition that caused you to fall was defective. The best evidence of this condition is obviously a photograph or videotape that shows the defect. If at all possible, you should take a photograph of the hazard immediately after the fall and locate witnesses who can help support your case.

It is essential to contact our Ann Arbor attorneys immediately after the incident so that we can start the legal investigation of your case and gather the evidence necessary to prove and win your case. Our law firm’s investigators can interview witnesses and inspect the scene before the defendant can change or repair the conditions. Measurements and photographs of the hazardous conditions are taken and preserved for trial.

In Michigan, a person injured in a slip and fall accident must generally file a lawsuit within three years of the date of the incident. There are very few exceptions. If you fell on government property, like a sidewalk, you must act even quicker. If you fail to meet the deadlines, your case will be barred forever and you cannot sue for your injuries.
