It is doubtful that they are responsible for paying our medical bills under Michigan law unless you fell due to some defect that you could not have seen yourself if you were paying attention. Fall cases are extremely difficult. In well over 90% the claimant never sees a dime.

They likely however have a med pay policy that would cover some medical bills.
