What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is when an injury is caused by an unsafe or faulty condition on someone else's property.

Fast Action From Experienced Lawyers

Our experience enables us to act quickly on our clients' behalf when insurance companies and their adjusters seek to limit their recovery. Our Oklahoma premises liability attorneys have taken action on behalf of more than 15,000 clients in our history, recovering upwards of $500 million of our injured clients. We maintain strict confidentiality for our clients. Additionally, we charge no fee for legal service unless we are able to recover compensation for your premises liability injury.

What do I have to prove in order to win a premises liability case?

There are four things you must be able to prove in a court of law in order to have a premises liability case:

  • A hazard existed on the premises that the property owner should reasonably have been aware of
  • The property owner did not take precautions to remove or block the hazard
  • The hazard caused an injury
  • The injury led to monetary and/or non-monetary losses for the victim (medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc.)

Essentially, if you and/or your attorney can show that your injury was a direct result of a preventable property hazard (and due to little or no fault of your own) you will have a valid case. We recommend consulting with a local lawyer during a free case evaluation to determine whether you have a case.

What are some examples of dangerous conditions which give rise to lawsuits?

Any hazard that causes harm—and that the property owner should have removed for the safety of their visitors—can count as a dangerous condition in a premises liability case. While extreme hazards such as gaping holes in the flooring may come to mind, premises liability claims can also be based on things like poor lighting, inadequate security, and wet floors.

Dangerous property conditions that often lead to lawsuits include:

  • Leaks
  • Spills
  • Cables running across walkways
  • Clutter and debris
  • Open doors and drawers
  • Poor lighting/low visibility
  • Recently waxed or mopped floors
  • Ice and snow
  • Broken floorboards or stairs
  • Uneven flooring
  • Inadequate security measures
  • Sudden transitions from one kind of flooring to another

Can I bring a case against a store or business owner if I am injured by another person while I am on their property?

You may be able to under certain circumstances, yes. In the event that you can connect your injury to a flaw with how the property is managed, you may be able to file a lawsuit. For example, if a lack of security caused someone to break into a building and cause harm, that is grounds for a valid premises liability claim. Negligent security claims are a major facet of premises liability cases, and individuals have also brought successful claims based on things such as robbery and assault.
