You may be able to sue for pain and suffering compensation and money damages for medical bills and lost wages if you were injured in a slip and fall on ice in Detroit.
When you are a customer at a store, business, restaurant, casino, music venue, or shopping mall, the property owner or manager has a duty to protect you from the hazards of ice and snow.
They can be held legally liable – and ordered to pay compensation as well as noneconomic and economic damages to you – when you’re injured in a slip and fall because they breached their duty by failing to protect invitees like yourself from the hazards of the natural accumulation of ice and snow on the property.
Specifically, property owners and managers are legally required to take “reasonable measures” to reduce the danger that ice and snow poses to invitees like you, i.e., people whom the property owner has invited onto the premises to do business with or otherwise provide a financial gain to the property owner.
Time is of the essence when it comes to filing a Michigan slip and lawsuit. Evidence needs to be preserved so it’s not destroyed. Witnesses need to be identified and contacted. And surveillance footage needs to be saved.
