Michigan’s trial lawyers are urging Governor Rick Snyder to veto a bill they say will make it harder to sue cities and towns for injuries from uneven sidewalks.
Tom Waun is the president of the Michigan Association for Justice.
He says the bill would put plaintiffs in a ‘Catch-22’. They wouldn’t be able to sue if they trip on a crack less than 2 inches in height. But if the crack is more than two inches, the law finds they should have been able to see it and avoid tripping.
Waun says that’s not fair.
