Date:2/17/2013

Southfield, MI (PRWEB) February 18, 2013

Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. is proud to announce that its attorney George Burke recently made the Michigan Lawyers Weekly for a recent settlement on behalf of a client who suffered injuries in a slip and fall on ice accident. The lawsuit (Catrow v. Madison Property Co. LLC, et al.) was filed in the Oakland County Circuit Court (Case no. 11-123576-NO) in front of Judge Phyllis McMillen and settled for $60,000.

The lawsuit arouse out of a slip and fall on ice accident. George Burke’s client, a 50 year old woman, was bringing her garbage to the apartment complex’s Dumpster when she slipped and fell on ice, sustaining an injury to her ankle. George Burke filed the lawsuit on behalf of the client against the property company, Madison Property C. LLC, as well as the apartment complex, Depsly Pontrail Apartments LLC.

The Defendants argued that the area of the fall was the parking lot and that the plaintiff was aware of the wintery conditions outside. However, Attorney George Burke at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. was able to successfully prove that the property company and apartment complex were at fault by using photographic evidence and taking depositions of maintenance supervisor and maintenance people.

The Michigan personal injury attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. frequently represent clients injured at an apartment complex or on apartment building grounds. This includes both tenants of the apartment complex and guests of tenants visiting the building. The firm also represents visitors to the complex who are there for business purposes, such as utility workers, postal workers, and contractors.

Under Michigan law, the apartment complex owner has the legal duty to make the premise safe for tenants of the complex and others who are lawfully on the premises. This includes keeping outside sidewalks, parking lots, and steps safe and properly maintained during wintering weather conditions as well. Falls due to snow and ice, broken and defective sidewalks, and defective sidewalks and stairs are quite common.

“If possible, take photographs of the defective or dangerous condition after the fall. This will provide great evidence to prove and win your case later on. The complex may repair the condition after your injury so it is best to take photos before any repairs are performed. This helps to demonstrate the dangerous condition to the judge and jury,” says George Burke.

Victims injured in a slip and fall at a Michigan apartment complex do have legal rights and should understand them. For more information about George Burke and the slip and fall personal injury law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. visit http://www.BuckfireLaw.com
