MICHIGAN PREMISES LIABILITY ATTORNEY


Property that directly lead to personal injury. While some cases involve a “slip and fall” or “trip and fall,” many premises liability claims arise from defective stairs and railings, violation of building codes, violation of leases, as well as substandard materials and workmanship. Michigan case law had become increasingly critical of these claims and many are defended and dismissed by application of the judicially created concept of “open and obvious”, wherein the courts hold that despite a defective or dangerous condition of the land, no duty arises on the part of the landowner if the injured person should have seen and avoided the condition. There are certain exceptions to this judicially created rule of lack of duty and I can review your specific facts to determine if I can help you. Further it may be that Michigan Courts are becoming slightly more receptive to these claims, so it is critical to obtain a legal consultation as to the specifics of your potential case.

There is usually a
3 year statute of limitations in regard to these claims (MCL §600.5805) but shorter time limits apply in the regards to public sidewalks, highways and buildings, so legal consultation is a must.


Construction site accident claim can also be premises liability claims, but generally are more complex due to the number of entities involved in running/working on a construction site (please see the Construction Accident Litigation
Practice Areas) for more information regarding these types of claims).
