Common Premises Liability Claims

When property owners fail to provide a safe environment – including interior and exterior premises – accidents can occur. Some of the most common Oklahoma premises liability claims include:

  • Slip and Fall Accidents (caused by wet and slippery floors or icy walkways)
  • Poor Lighting (leading to falls or accidents)
  • Swimming Pool Drownings (with inadequate fencing or protection)
  • Trip and Fall Accidents (from uneven walkways, sidewalks, or unmarked steps)
  • Broken or Damaged Property (steps, stairs, handrails, loose carpeting, etc.)
  • Inadequate Security (leading to rape, robbery, or assault)

These accidents can occur almost anywhere: grocery stores, restaurants, hotels/motels, public walkways and sidewalks, or stadiums.

Claims Depend on Your Visitor Status

When you’re visiting someone else’s property, you’ll fit into one of three categories. The attorneys at Dyer, Coatney & Acuña can help analyze and prepare your potential premises liability claim. These categories will impact your claim:

  • Invitees: People who are invited onto the property (like customers to a business)
  • Licensees: People entering the property for their own purposes (a contracted worker)
  • Trespassers: People entering the property without permission or the right to be there
