Slip and Fall
We Fight For You
Winning or settling a Slip and Fall case in Michigan is difficult. Michigan courts have adopted an “open and obvious” doctrine. “Open and obvious” puts the burden on the person who falls to prove the hazard that caused the slip or fall was unavoidable.
The Triton Legal PLC team has successfully secured fair and just compensation for our Slip and Fall clients.
What is the “Open and Obvious” Doctrine?
Under Michigan law, property owners are not liable for Slip and Fall accidents if a hazardous condition is “open and obvious.” Michigan courts have ruled that property owners are not responsible for accidents if a person of average intelligence would have noticed the hazard if he or she had paid more attention.
