Slip and Fall Apartment
Slip and Fall Apartment
I had a slip and fall on the sidewalk of my apartment building. Do I have a case?
Michigan law states that apartment building owners have a statutory duty to their tenants to keep common areas safe. The Michigan Supreme Court and the Appellate Courts have interpreted this statutory duty and current Michigan law states that if an individual falls on a defect on the common area sidewalk of their apartment, and the sidewalk is not fit for its intended use, the owners may be liable. A good example of this is an individual who must traverse their sidewalk to get to their car to go to work in the morning. We have had many clients state that they complain to the apartment building that the sidewalks are covered ice and snow and it is not safe to walk, but the apartment takes no action. If there is no way to get to your car other than encountering this dangerous condition, our opinion is that the owner or management company is liable. We have settled many cases similar to this for clients who felt they simply had no choice but to encounter this dangerous condition.

Dear Mr. Mindell,
Your slogan states: “Experience Dedication Success”. I believe in my heart, strongly added to that should have been, “Honest Fair Integrity”. For those are the finest principles in you, and that was my experience of what you most importantly instilled and guide your practice on. Thank you so much. I do so respect you.
You folks are amazing! It’s a pleasure to work with people that under-promise and over-deliver—many thanks for all that you’ve done.
You went all out to help me when I needed it, and I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You helped make my life so much better.
