Michigan Supreme Court Eases Slip-And-Fall Lawsuit Requirements
The Michigan Supreme Court is making it easier to win slip-and-fall lawsuits in the state.
It can be difficult to win under Michigan law because the cause of the fall must have “special aspects.”
A worker at a Detroit restaurant sued after falling on an icy parking lot back in 2014.
She had to have three surgeries because of the fall.
The Supreme Court ruled that there can be an exception to the “special aspects” requirement if the fall happened while trying to get into a workplace.
