Huge Change In Michigan Law Affecting Anyone Who Slips/Trips/Falls

A HUGE recent change in Michigan law affects anyone who slips/trips/falls while:

  • making a delivery.
  • in a restaurant.
  • in a parking lot.
  • walking on snow or ice.
  • walking on frayed carpet, and many more causes.

The cause of the fall could be bad pavement, a slippery substance on pavement or on a floor, ice buildup which has never been salted, and so on. This law change affects workers for on-the-job injuries and consumers for off-the-job injuries. It affects drivers for UPS, FedEx, Amazon, Cassens Transport, Coca Cola, Pepsi Cola, etc; it affects carpenters, electricians, plumbers and all other building tradesmen who slip/trip/fall due to debris on a construction site that the general contractor hasn’t cleaned up.

The bottom line is that if you have suffered an injury due to slipping, tripping or falling due to a hazard, call me to see if you have a claim. Unlike a worker’s compensation claim, in this type of claim you can get damages for pain and suffering, as well as for loss of income and medical bills.

I have decades of experience handling this type of claim.

Client Reviews
"Marshall Lasser is aggressive, always attacking, knows the law and never gives up. He won my Worker’s comp case and my negligence case against the general contractor." - Lou Ghaffari
"Lasser fights hard and he's smart. He won the work comp case and sued the homeowner whose busted driveway caused my injury. Mr. Lasser got a jury verdict for me in that case, when other lawyers told me the jury would give me nothing." - Barbara Wood
