Part three of this four-part premises liability series focuses on the strategic issues one should consider when collecting witness statements as part of an incident report procedure.
In this second part of our four-part series on premises liability documentation, we take a look at the importance of detailed incident reports as a means for defending against a plaintiff's slip, trip and fall claim.
The Michigan Supreme Court recently doubled-down on the plain meaning of "open and obvious" in premises liability claims by reversing two lower appellate court rulings.
Appellate court affirms trial court's ruling to allow land survey as evidence in slip and fall liability case.
