Individuals falling on sidewalks that are broken or cracked can sustain
serious injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Brain injuries
- Hip injuries
- Back injuries
In some instances, sidewalk injuries can also be fatal. Michigan law (MCL
691.1402a) establishes that the government could be liable for a sidewalk
injury due to a defect. The government body must have known of the existence
of a defect in a sidewalk at least 30 days before the individual was injured.
While the law states a sidewalk is presumed safe if a ”discontinuity
defect” is less than two inches, you may still have a claim even
if this is the case.
