Slip and Fall
If any lawsuit is difficult to win in Michigan it is one seeking damages for injuries sustained in an ice and snow slip and fall. These cases are very often dismissed before trial on the legal premise that ice and snow are open and obvious hazards.
It makes sense. As Michigan residents, we know that ice and snow are slippery. We know that to protect ourselves from injury, we should avoid walking on slippery surfaces. Of course, sometimes we cannot avoid walking across the ice and snow. Other times, the ice is not visible. Slip and falls involving black ice (invisible ice) or an unavoidable hazard are not your fault and you may be entitled to damages.
