Premises Liability Information
Premises liability is a body of law concerned with accidents and injuries that occur on another's property, and the property owner's legal accountability for these incidents. A property owner is not always responsible for any injury that occurs on his or her property grounds; there are rather particular instances where negligence or wrongdoing will result in the owner being legally responsible.
In Michigan, a person injured on the property of another person or entity may be able to seek financial compensation for his or her injuries by filing a lawsuit in civil court. At Freedman Law Group, our Michigan personal injury attorney can talk to you about the incident and can evaluate the situation to determine whether you may have grounds to file a lawsuit. When you choose our firm, we will work to determine the potential value of your claim, and will help you seek full financial compensation for medical expenses, any lost earnings, and more.

Premises Liability Practice Areas
If you or a loved one has been injured on someone else's property, you have a right to pursue fair compensation. This compensation can help you pay medical bills, lost earnings, loss of future income, and more, depending on the unique details of your case. Our dedicated Michigan personal injury lawyer proudly represents injury victims in a wide range of premises liability cases, including:
- Slip & Fall– Slip and fall accidents may seem like less than serious incidents, but they can result in devastating injuries. If you were injured on the property of another, you could be entitled to compensation.
- Dog Bites– You could receive compensation from the owner of the dog for any medical expenses which resulted from the attack. Since Michigan is a strict liability state, you could have a case regardless of whether or not the dog was dangerous in the past.
- Assaults & Attacks– If you were assaulted while on someone else's property, the owner of the property could be held responsible. Property owners need to ensure that security measures are upheld to that people on their property are safe.
- Security Negligence– If you were injured on the property of another because the property owner was not careful in upholding security, please contact us as soon as possible. We can examine your case and determine if there was any negligence involved in your case.
- Day Care Negligence– Negligence in a day care is a serious situation. If your child suffered because an employer or owner of a daycare was negligent, contact us. Whether they were injured in a fall, on the playground, or was abused, a premises liability case could be filed.
- Retail Store Negligence– Accidents which take place in a retail store can include slip and fall accidents, falling objects, assaults, and more. If you were injured in a store due to the negligence of the owner, you could be entitled to compensation.
Key Parts of a Premises Liability Claim
For a person who is interested in filing a premises liability claim, it will be important to understand the key parts of a case of this kind. It is crucial to retain a Michigan personal injury attorney who is experienced and knowledgeable about this area of law. Your lawyer will need to establish:

- You were lawfully on the defendant's property.
- The defendant violated his or her obligation to visitors or customers at the property in some way.
- You were injured.
