If injured on another party's property, you may feel overwhelmed by the situation. It is possible that, in addition to physical pain and suffering, you are also facing medical bills and lost wages from missed work. It is entirely possible that negligent maintenance or dangerous premises caused your injury. Victims of this type of negligence may have grounds for a premises liability claim.
It is the responsibility of an Oklahoma property owner to ensure that premises are maintained in good condition and that any potential hazards are clearly marked. Some common reasons for premises liability claims include falls on slippery floors, falling merchandise in retail stores, uneven sidewalks and more. Victims of dog bites, accidents resulting from negligent security and swimming pool accidents may also seek compensation from parties believed responsible.
Premises liability claims are not limited to accidents that occur in public places, such as parks, stores or restaurants. These claims may also be appropriate after an accident on private property. In some cases, it can be difficult to determine if another party is liable for your pain and suffering. When unsure of your legal options, it is wise to seek the opinion of a lawyer.
