Tulsa Premises Liability Lawyer

When a property owner doesn’t care for their property and someone gets hurt, that injured person can file a personal injury claim to get paid back for what they lost based on the injury. Anyone who owns a house or a business must protect visitors to that property. State law requires all property owners to take care of their properties, addressing any safety issues as they arise or at least warning guests and visitors if they are likely to come across them. Unfortunately, not all private property owners in the Tulsa area uphold their responsibilities.

Any injury that occurs while someone is on another party’s property means there is possibility for a premises liability claim.Oklahoma’s premises liability laws generally protect guests, neighbors, and others seeing the property for personal reasons, as well as utility workers, mail carriers, and those who have implied permission to enter the property.

A premises liability claim happens with owners don’t take proper care of their property and it causes someone to get hurt. When that happens, victims can get paid for the medical expenses and lost time at work that it costs them.

Commonly filed types of premises liability claims in Tulsa include:

  • Slip or trip and fall accidents. This is the most common type of premises liability action filed in the Tulsa area. It could happen if a grocery store floor is wet and wasn’t attended to quickly enough and someone falls. Another example might be products left in aisles that cause customers to trip.
  • Dog bites. The state enforces strict liability for dog bites within the city limits, so a dog’s owner is generally fully responsible for any and all injuries their pet causes to others. If you were hurt by a property owner’s dog while lawfully visiting the property, the property owner may owe money for your injury.
  • Dram shop/bar liability. A dram shop, bar, or any establishment that sells and/or serves alcohol must be extra responsible. If they continue serving clearly intoxicated patrons or underage customers who then proceed to cause damage to others while drunk, they may owe accident victims money under premises liability laws.
  • Improper/negligent maintenance. Property owners must perform regular maintenance of their properties. This is especially important for private commercial property owners to prevent injuries to customers. Broken steps, improper lighting, or trip hazards are all examples of poor maintenance that could cause someone to injure themselves.
  • Failure to clear snow, ice, and water.
  • Wrongful death. If you recently lost a loved one due to an accident they suffered on another party’s property, call our firm. A Tulsa premises liability attorney will be able to help you during such a difficult time.

Recovering From Your Personal Injury in Tulsa, OK

Contacting our firm may be your first step in recovering the money you’ve lost from your injury. Once it’s clear that the property owner is the at fault, you have to prove how serious your injuries are.

A premises liability claim is a type of personal injury claim. You may be awarded money back for what you paid for during your recovery. A personal injury claim may mean money back for:

  • Medical expenses, both those you that happened right away and any long-term medical care costs for managing symptoms and paying for ongoing care.
  • Lost income. If your injury kept you from working for any significant time, you could hold the defendant accountable for the income you lost during this time. You may also be repaid for any vacation time or accrued paid time off you had to use because of the injury.
  • Lost future income. Some people can’t go back to their job at all due to the injury. The defendant may be responsible for paying for your lost future wages if you aren’t able to work in your previous career.
  • Property loss, such as the cost of replacing or repairing personal belongings damaged or destroyed in the incident in question. If your phone fell out of your pocket during a fall or jewelry was stolen during a mugging due to bad lighting, these items can be included in what the property owner must pay you back for.

Aside from getting money for what you already have paid, plaintiffs in Oklahoma civil claims for damages may also seek money for their pain and suffering. While there is no price on being able to walk or not have trauma from an incident, courts will try to make up for this suffering with more money. A good Tulsa premises liability attorney can help figure out what such a number might be.
