Injuries on Someone Else’s Property
You may be entitled to compensation if you sustained injuries on someone else’s property. Property owners have a responsibility to provide legally-defined guests with a certain duty of care when they are on the premises of a home, restaurant, or other place of business. Part of this duty of care is making sure the property is safe to walk around. If property owners do not take the necessary steps to keep their property safe, they are putting people’s safety at risk.
If you or someone you know has suffered an injury because of a property owner’s negligent actions, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation. At the Abel Law Firm, our team of Oklahoma premises liability lawyers is dedicated to helping you every step of the way. To schedule a free consultation with one of our attorneys, contact us today at (405) 239-7046 to discuss your potential case.
Common Causes of Injury
Though there are some hazards that are essentially impossible to eliminate, when there is a danger that a property owner has reason to know of or to reasonably foresee, they may be found to be legally liable for harm that befalls an individual due to the owner’s negligence. You may be able to pursue legal action if you suffered an injury because of any of the following:
- Wet or slippery floors without warning
- Missing handrails
- Staircase defects
- The collapse of a porch, balcony, or roof
Depending upon the nature of your accident and the extent of the injuries that you have sustained, you may be dealing with substantial medical bills and other difficulties. You should not have to bear these alone. Successful legal action can help to ease these burdens.
Do not delay. If you have been hurt due to the negligence of a property owner, contact the Oklahoma premises liability lawyers of the Abel Law Firm by calling (405) 239-7046 today. You might be able to recover financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.
