Edenville, MI Dam Failure Lawsuits

Thousands of residents and businesses in Edenville, Sanford, and parts of Midland have been forced to evacuate following a pair of catastrophic dam failures. The devastation – like something out of a horror film – is expected to cause record flooding in parts of central Michigan.

The Edenville Dam and the Sanford Lake Dam both gave out on the same day, prompting Governor Gretchen Whitmer to declare a state of emergency. The timing couldn’t be worse, as mid-Michigan – like the rest of the world – contends with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

You may have lost a home, a business, or endured significant property damage due to the dam failures. If so, know that there’s someone looking out for you.

FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • What Can I Do To Stay Safe Right Now?

    First things first: It’s important that you and your family are safe. The city of Midland has asked approximately 10,000 residents to evacuate as the flooding worsens. If you are in the area but unable to stay with family or friends, you can head to one of the following shelters:

    • West Midland Family Center - 4011 W. Isabella Road
    • Midland High School - 1301 Eastlawn Drive
    • Bullock Creek High School - 1420 S. Badour Road (pet friendly)
    • Coleman High School - 4951 N. Lewis Road
    • North Midland Family Center - 2601 E. Shearer Road (pet friendly)
  • Who Is Responsible For the Dam?

    You’re likely wondering who is responsible for all of this damage. Generally speaking, the owner of a dam is responsible for its upkeep. If they fail to repair, maintain, or operate the dam safely, they may be liable for any ensuing damages to:

    • Homes
    • Businesses
    • Roads
    • Highways
    • Utilities
    • Transportation
    • Farms
    • Other Essential Services

    In 2018, federal regulators determined that Edenville Dam owner Boyce Hydro, LLC displayed a “long-term failure to comply with dam safety and other requirements.” They revoked the company's license out of concern that the spillway couldn’t pass sufficient water to avoid failure during a historic flood. After days of heavy rain, the dam collapsed.

  • Can I Sue the Owner?

    If you suffered personal or financial harm as a result of the dam failures, you may have grounds for a lawsuit against the owner. Provided the owner failed to act in a reasonably safe and prudent manner given the circumstances, they may have been negligent – that is, legally responsible for the outcome. 

    Negligence can be established through records of inspections, lack of compliance with local and state regulations, and other evidence. The attorneys at Morgan & Morgan may be able to help.

  • Contact Morgan & Morgan

    If you were a victim of the Edenville and Sanford dam failures, contact Morgan & Morgan. You could be entitled to compensation for your hardship.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
