Detroit Slip and Fall Lawyers
Have you been injured on someone else's property? Whether your accident occurred in a restaurant, at a private residence, or on public property, you can hold the owner responsible for their negligence and get the compensation you deserve. At the law offices of Feldheim & Wilenkin we investigate your claim and do everything we can to protect your rights.
We have secured substantial recoveries for clients injured by reason of unsafe stair cases both inside and outside of houses and buildings. Defective driveways and sidewalks can be a basis for a claim as well as inadequate lighting. Many times, we are able to prove that a homeowner has violated a local or state ordinance. We hire expert witnesses when needed.
The Michigan Supreme Court has made it much harder to recover for slip and fall or trip and fall injuries The court has tried to insulate insurance companies from liability by ruling that property owners have no duty of care with regard to “open and obvious “conditions. Never the less, we investigate these cases to determine if there is a viable claim to be pursued.
We have handled numerous dog bite cases obtaining recoveries for both children and adults bitten by dogs. We recently settled a dog bite case for a child for $75,000 after the insurance company had made a last and final offer of $18,000 prior to our intervention in the case. Owners of dogs are strictly liable for injuries caused by their dogs unless the dog was provoked.
All property owners have an obligation to maintain their property free and clear of unreasonable dangers. The failure to take care o dangerous conditions, such as significant cracks in the pavement or broken railings, can lead to serious injuries. Inadequate lighting also causes many injuries. With over 50 years of experience handling premises liability claims in Michigan courts, our attorneys are prepared to handle cases involving all types of incidents, including:
