Types of Premises Liability in Oklahoma
Premises liability occurs when a property owner, manager, or another person responsible for that property fails to ensure it is safe and, in doing so, puts you at risk for injury. Premise liability is a complex area of the law because it requires that you prove negligence. However, some examples of premise liability incidents include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dog bites
- Loose railings
- Poor lighting
- Lack of security
- Toxic fume exposure
- Hotel accidents
- Grocery store accidents
- Construction site negligence
- Parking lot accidents
Any time that you are hurt when you are on someone else’s property – and you have the right to be there – you may be eligible for premises liability damages for any losses you have. Our Guthrie premises liability lawyers have the experience to help you determine if what happened to you falls under Oklahoma laws. Allow us to provide a free consultation to discuss your rights in that area.

What Your Premises Liability Case May Be Worth
When you are hurt in a premises liability matter of any type, you have the right to seek out compensation for the losses you have incurred. The Insurance Information Institute says that, in 2020, the average premises liability claim across the U.S. was $811,769 when cases ended up in court. While this is skewed somewhat due to the wide range of high-end claims that end up in court, it shows you that there is a substantial loss to recover here.
To determine what your specific case is worth, our premises liability lawyer in Guthrie will work closely with you to understand how you suffered as a result of this incident, including how it impacted your health and well-being. Most often, our clients suffer both economic losses and noneconomic losses, and you should seek compensation for any that apply to you. Here are some examples of these losses:
- Medical bills from the care directly related to the incident
- Lost time at work
- Losses related to property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of earning capacity
- Loss of quality of life
- Long-term recovery
- Reconstructive surgery
Proving Negligence in a Premises Liability Case
To win a premises liability case in Oklahoma, you must prove that the property owner, manager, or others responsible for that property were negligent. This is a bit more complex than many expect, and it is one of the most important reasons to hire a premises liability attorney in Guthrie if you are considering a claim like this. There are four components to proving negligence in a case like this:
- Prove that the property owner owed you a duty of care, which means you had the right or were welcomed (directly or indirectly) onto the property.
- The property owner or other responsible party breached that duty in some way.
- The breach of that duty directly caused the injuries you suffered.
- The injuries you suffered were real damages, meaning financial loss occurred.
For example, if a grocery store opened for business, that means they had a duty of care to provide a safe location, but if the cooler was leaking, and you slipped and hit your head, suffering medical losses, they may be negligent. In this case, we also have to demonstrate that the property owner or manager knew of the problem, had the time to take action, and failed to do so. Bringing all of these factors together is what leads to proving negligence, and a premises liability lawyer at BDIW Law can help you.
