Akron, OH asked in Personal Injury for Michigan

Q: Slipped and fell

I had to have surgery to wire and pin it back together, the area I fell was a dangerous area unknown to me but the owner knew because I was later told he was asked to fix it several times but refused I was also told he normally had warning cones set in this are but not the day I was there, a customer who came to help me fell also, would this be deemed my fault for not watching where I was going?

A: It's difficult to tell, based on these facts alone. It would be helpful to know why the cones were removed, the extent of the defects involved, among other factors. You could contact a Michigan injury attorney to discuss the matter in greater detail, and that would probably enable a more meaningful evaluation of the respective liabilities here. Good luck
