If someone slips and falls in a public place due to a dangerous condition such as a wet floor or trip hazard and suffers an injury, the property or business owners may be held liable for the pain and suffering of the injured person. Owners of the property must make sure that the space is free of any hazards that may cause trips and falls.
If you or a loved one has suffered a slip and fall accident, you may be eligible for compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
In Michigan, you must file a personal injury claim within three years of your injury or six months of discovery of your injury in order to be eligible to receive compensation.
