There are MANY reasons why someone "slips and falls."
Could be school's fault; could be your son's fault; or
it could be a third-party's fault --- a schoolmate pushing

You may face a difficult problem getting past Michigan's law on governmental immunity. There is a 180 day limit to give notice of any possible lawsuit, so you do need to act fast to find out if you have a valid case.
