Filing a Premises Liability Claim

Slip and Fall Premises Liability

When filing a Michigan premises liability claim, the first step is to determine who can be held responsible for your injuries. In legal terms, this person is called a “possessor of land.” A possessor may be a:

  • business owner,
  • club,
  • home owner,
  • landlord,
  • property management company,
  • school,
  • tenant,
  • or other property owner or manager.

Who Is Responsible for Your Premises Liability Claim?

An experienced premises liability attorney can investigate your accident to determine the possessor of the premises where you fell. Depending on the facts of your case, a possessor has varying levels of responsibility to care for a property.

Based on the location of your accident, you may fall into one of the following categories:

  1. Trespasser
    If a possessor doesn’t know or have any reason to know you are on the premises, he or she may not be required to make the premises safe or warn you about dangerous conditions. Exceptions can be made depending on how much knowledge the possessor has of your presence.
  2. Licensee
    You may be considered a licensee if you had the possessor’s permission to be on the property. Common examples of licensees include:

    • canvassers,
    • churchgoers,
    • neighbors,
    • and salespeople.
  3. Invitee
    If you were shopping or were on the premises for the commercial benefit of the person possessing the property, you may be considered an invitee on the premises.

If you’ve been injured on someone else’s property, we can help determine who is responsible for your accident. Don’t risk your chance at collecting compensation for your injuries. Our Michigan premises liability attorneys are here to protect your rights, so you can focus on getting better.
