Premises Liability Representation
Were you or a loved one sickened or injured on someone else’s property? Should you consider filing a premises liability lawsuit due to a breach of duty by the landowner or tenant of the property? Michigan’s premises liability law indicates that both property owners and tenants have a responsibility to ensure their property is safe. If not, they may be held liable for injuries suffered on the property.
Building a premises liability lawsuit can be complicated and time-consuming, so it’s important to find a local Michigan attorney who is familiar with the relevant laws to represent your case. At Dingeman & Dancer, PLC, our experienced attorneys can help you understand your rights under premises liability law and secure fair compensation for your injuries, including medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.
What Is Premises Liability Law?
Like most personal injury cases, premises liability is based on negligence. In the State of Michigan, premises liability law covers situations in which there was a defective or unsafe condition on someone’s property that caused an injury. The law holds the “possessor of land” liable for injuries if found negligent. A possessor can be a:
- Business owner
- School or organization
- Property manager or a property management company
Under the law, a possessor owes a duty to all invited parties entering the property to inspect the property for hazards and either make necessary repairs or warn invitees of all potential hazards. In order to win a premises liability lawsuit, you need our qualified legal representation to prove the possessor was negligent in respect to the ownership, maintenance, and safety of the property.
Examples of Premises Liability Lawsuits
Many different personal injury cases may fall under premises liability law, including:
- Insufficient maintenance of the property
- Slip and fall cases
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Toxic fumes
- Defective conditions
- Lack of building security which led to assault or injury
- Fires and floods
At Dingeman & Dancer, PLC, we have helped countless clients who have suffered injuries as a result of these conditions to receive compensation. Our knowledgeable attorneys are committed to providing the representation you need to move forward in your case with confidence.
How to Build Your Premises Liability Lawsuit
The Dingeman & Dancer, PLC attorneys will conduct an in-depth investigation to determine who is responsible for your accident and what level of liability they hold, which depends on the location of your accident on the property and your reason for being there. Because Michigan courts indicate a property owner is only responsible if the risk was not noticeable to the casual observer, our legal team may also need to gather evidence to prove the property’s dangerous condition was not easily recognizable.
Our experienced attorneys can show that the property owner should reasonably have known the premises were unsafe, yet still failed to take the proper steps to prevent your injuries.
