Usually a slip and fall accident refers to a situation where a person is injured by slipping, falling or tripping because of a dangerous condition on the grounds. If you have been injured in a slip and fall, you may need a Michigan person injury attorney who can fight on your behalf.

Slip and fall accidents, also known as premises liability cases, can be cause by so many different conditions. A Michigan personal injury attorney can help you determine if it is worth it for you to pursue your case.

These falls can happen inside or outside a building. They can be caused by bad floors, wet floors, poorly lit steps, cracks in the pavement or ice or snow, among other causes. These cases are covered by negligence laws. Anyone who owns a property has the responsibility to make sure their property is safe, including problem areas caused by weather like icy patches and standing water or structural defects like loose tiles, wet floors, poorly lit areas.

If you suffered serious injuries in any type of slip and fall accident, it is important to determine what the cause of the fall was and if it could have been prevented or anticipated. If there are witnesses, get the names and numbers or them and note any conditions in the area of the incident. If possible, get pictures of the area as well.
