Detroit July 16, 2021 Flood Class Action Lawsuit

Dubin Law, PLLC has filed a class action lawsuit against the City of Detroit and Great Lakes Water Authority as a result of the July 16, 2021, flood event.

The lawsuit asserts that the Bluehill Pump Station malfunctioned causing the flood event. The lawsuit also asserts that the City failed to properly maintain, design, and operate its combined sewer system.

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.

In order to be covered by this law, 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.
