Dubin Law, PLLC has filed a class action lawsuit against Garden City for the June 25-26, 2021 flood. Over 800 homes reported flooding as a result of the City's failure to maintain its sewers. The lawsuit asserts that the City failed to properly maintain, design, and operate its sanitary sewer system.
Sadly, this is the 3x in the last 12 years that the City's sewers suffered a catastrophic failure. “Many cities have ignored long-standing problems with their sewer systems and these disastrous flooding events are often foreseeable and preventable,” David Dubin said.
Basement flooding victims no longer have to accept this as true. Dubin Law can help. David Dubin has successfully represented thousands of clients throughout Michigan as a result of a basement flooding event. With unparalleled expertise in determining the cause of most basement flooding, Dubin Law specializes in acquiring the evidence necessary to prove the city liable for these events.
Michigan law dictates that basement flooding victims may be entitled to compensation. If a city fails to address operation or maintenance defects that it knew or should have known about, it can be held liable for causing your basement to flood. However, basement flooding victims must file a written Notice of Claim with the responsible governments within 45 days from the date the flood was discovered to preserve their right to file a lawsuit.
