An apartment complex in Michigan recently reached a $60,000 settlement with a woman who was injured slipping on ice at the apartment complex where she lived. This case is notable because there is some debate about whether or not a property management company is responsible for dangerous conditions outside. If you or a loved one have been injured at an apartment complex or retail establishment by slipping on ice or other dangerous condition, call the Georgia slip and fall lawyers at The Berry Law Group today.
The woman was a resident of the apartment complex and was bringing her trash out to the complex's dumpster when she slipped on a patch of ice and broke her ankle. Her slip and fall lawyer argued that the management company was responsible for her injuries because the area by the dumpster is a well-known traffic area for residents. This alone did not make the case, but her slip and fall lawyer got interviews and took photographs of the area proving that the employees were aware of the ice yet did nothing to protect the residents. This is a great example of how hardworking and experienced slip and fall attorneys can work to get compensation for their clients.
This 50 year old woman's life will be greatly altered due to her broken ankle. She is entitled to compensation and was able to get a fair settlement thanks to the help of her slip and fall lawyer.
