Were you recently injured on another person's property? This may have been at an office building, mall or retail store or perhaps at a private residence. There are particular circumstances where you may be able to hold the property owner liable for your injuries.
Common claims of this kind, called premises liability claims, may include those involving slip and fall accidents, construction accidents or injuries resulting from security negligence. Even children can be represented in these claims under the attractive nuisance doctrine.
Talking to an Oklahoma City personal injury attorney is one of the first steps to take if you were injured while on another's property. After seeking immediate medical attention, it is important to talk to an attorney about what occurred. This will allow you to determine whether you have grounds for a premises liability lawsuit.
Premises Liability Law Defined
Under state premises laws, property owners have the duty to reasonably ensure their premises are safe for lawful visitors. If you are injured on another's property, you may have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the owner of the property to recover financial damages. You may be able to recover money for medical bills, emotional trauma, lost earnings, future medical treatment and possibly more.
