When you patronize a retail store or attend an event at a neighbor’s home, you reasonably expect that the premise is properly maintained and safe to visit. However, if the owner has neglected this duty, you may experience serious injury during your visit. Slip, trips, and other types of falls can result in various types of injuries, including fractures, traumatic brain injury, and more.
When you are involved in an accident on someone else’s property, an experienced Oklahoma premises liability lawyer can assist you with the representation you need to secure compensation. Our firm has a track record of success in all types of personal injury cases and has obtained several multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements on our clients’ behalf.
Premises liability basics
Premises owners have a duty to maintain their properties in a reasonably safe manner for the benefit of visitors. When an owner fails to meet this duty and a visitor is injured or killed as a result, a court of law may hold the owner liable. This responsibility extends to various types of properties, including:
- Retail stores
- Recreational facilities
- Parking areas and structures
- Private homes
Premises liability can apply whether the owner purposely or negligently fails to maintain the property. In some instances, the owner knew of the problem and neglected to fix it. In other situations, when the property is not properly monitored by the owner, it may fall into disrepair and become unsafe for others. Examples of dangerous conditions include:
- Icy walkways and parking areas
- Spills on a floor
- Floors in disrepair
- Lack of adequate security
- Falling merchandise
Our experienced Oklahoma premises liability attorneys understand that serious injuries can result from premises negligence, so we diligently work to guide you through the legal process and secure the compensation you deserve.
We hold the responsible party accountable
We understand that no amount of money can make up for the physical and emotional pain of a serious premises liability injury. However, our lawyers dedicate themselves to easing your financial hardship by seeking payment for:
- Medical expenses. Serious injuries require medical attention, and these costs can add up quickly. The attorneys of The Stipe Law Firm believe that the responsible party should take responsibility for these expenses.
- Loss of wages. Injuries can result in time off of work and a loss of income. We work to secure monetary damages for these losses.
- Pain and suffering. Though no amount of money can take away the pain of a serious injury, our lawyers guide you through the process of legal recompense.
- Punitive damages. When property owners perform wrongful acts, monetary punishment, in the form of punitive damages, may prove appropriate.
Premises liability incidents can result in serious, life threatening injuries. The experienced attorneys of The Stipe Law Firm are well versed in litigating premises liability cases, and we diligently work to prove the elements of your claim and gain compensation for your injuries.
