If you experience an injury in a public place due to a dangerous condition such as a wet floor or trip hazard, the property or business owners may be held liable for your pain and suffering. It is up to the owner of the property to make sure that the space is free of any hazards that may cause trips and falls for social guests or customers. If you or a loved one has suffered a slip and fall accident, it is best to act quickly so you can begin to receive any deserved benefits.
At the law firm of Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., we are experienced slip and fall attorneys that can help you build a personal injury case to recoup medical losses, lost wages, and ongoing treatment if you were injured in a slip and fall accident.
If your fall was due to a hazard in a public place, your slip and fall case may have a premises liability claim. This means that the injury that occurred may be the responsibility of the property owner or tenant.
The statute of limitations is two years for these cases, so contact a slip and fall lawyer in that time period to ensure you can pursue your claim. For cases where the injury was not discovered until after the two years, you may file a claim within six months of discovery to potentially extend the statute of limitations. In all cases, the sooner the accident or injury is reported, the better chance you have at receiving medical care or compensation quickly.
If you are injured from a slip and fall accident at a public place, it is the responsibility of the property owner and their insurance companies to provide you with adequate compensation.
Our team at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., is experienced with slip and fall cases in Michigan and can make sure you or your loved one receives the compensation you deserve and we will fight for your right to be protected. Call us at 866-MICH-LAW to schedule a free consultation.
