When an injury or wrongful death occurs on someone else’s property in Canton, Michigan, the negligent party is responsible for the pain and suffering of the victim. Michigan law has a statute of limitations of three years for these cases, and within six months of discovery for cases where the injury was not discovered until after the statute of limitations.
In all cases, the sooner the accident or injury is reported to a slip and fall attorney at our law firm, the better chance you have at receiving medical care or compensation quickly.
At the law firm of Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., we have experienced slip and fall attorneys and personal injury lawyers who can help you build a personal injury case to help you recoup medical losses, lost wages, and ongoing treatment if you were injured in a slip and fall accident.
If you fall due to a hazard in a public place, your slip and fall case may include a premises liability claim. This means the injury is the responsibility of the property owner or tenant. If the property is owned by a private party, they may be liable. However, public sidewalks and other areas meant for general access may be the liability of the city or local government. This can complicate your case because some parties may reject responsibility. At Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., we can help you determine what kind of case you may have and the liable party. If the incident involved an automobile, we are also experienced car accident lawyers.
If your personal injury occurs from a slip and fall accident at a public place, you may be eligible for compensation. In addition to slip and fall cases, our team can provide legal advice for other cases. We have medical malpractice, dog bite, and auto accident attorneys ready to take your call. Call us for a free consultation at 866-MICH-LAW to speak with an attorney about your slip and fall accident.
