Bloomfield Hills Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers Fight for Clients
Established Michigan firm handles the full range of premises liability claims
Slip and fall accidents commonly occur as a result of unsafe conditions on someone else’s property. Whether you were hurt on a public or private site, your injury might be linked to the property owner’s neglect. The Joseph Dedvukaj Firm, P.C. in Bloomfield Hills has decades of experience assisting Michigan residents who have been injured in businesses, homes, government buildings, stores and other locations. We investigate the relevant facts to determine if a damaged walking surface, poor lighting, the lack of a handrail, an untended spill or the failure to address weather conditions led to your fall. If negligence did play a role, our firm will fight to hold defendants accountable for violating the duty of care they owed to their guests.
Medical conditions often associated with a fall on an unsafe surface
The results of a slip and fall can include numerous types of injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Back pain and other spinal problems
- Abrasions and blood loss
- Joint damage
Throughout Oakland County and the surrounding areas, our firm draws on more than 25 years of legal experience to see that slip and fall victims are made whole.
Knowledgeable attorney advises on situations involving shared fault
In premises liability actions, plaintiffs can collect damages in court if they can show that the defendant violated their duty of care to them and that violation was the proximate cause of the injury. Some slip and fall victims are hesitant to seek justice because they believe that they might have been partly to blame for their injury. You should know that even if you are held partially responsible for your accident, you can still collect damages under Michigan law as long as the defendant is more at fault than you are. In these cases, the plaintiff’s award reduced by their percentage of fault. For example, if you incur $100,000 in damages after falling due to a poorly maintained floor, but are assigned 20 percent of the fault because you were glancing at your cell phone, your damage award would be $80,000.
