About Premises Liability Cases in Oklahoma

“Premises liability” is the legal terminology used to describe a slip and fall accident in which the homeowner or business owner is legally responsible for the victim’s injuries. But this legal concept covers more than just slip and fall cases. Property owners who fail to have proper security measures in place may be responsible if someone is assaulted or killed by another individual. They may be responsible if, for example, a child drowns in a swimming pool that failed to have a fence surrounding it.

Premises liability law relates to a property owner’s obligation to protect, within reason, the safety of others who rightfully access that property. Negligent maintenance of a building, sidewalk, or parking garage can lead to a variety of different types of accident.

Oklahoma premises liability law is based on a legal concept called “Duty of Care,” meaning that any citizen has a duty to exercise reasonable care so as not to intentionally create undue risk or danger for others. If you feel that another’s negligence violates that standard that led to an injury or loss, you can file a premises liability claim. The claim must show breach of duty and causation.
