At The Tawwater Law Firm, we handle the full range of premises liability lawsuits, including those involving accidents that occur on unsafe commercial properties. Premises liability law is the area of personal injury law that concerns the rights of those who legally enter onto other people’s premises. The owners or managers of properties have a duty to maintain these properties so that they are reasonably safe for visitors to enter onto. If there are any hazards present on the property that could threaten the safety of visitors, and the owner or manager of the property either knows of these hazards or should know of these hazards, then he or she must warn visitors of these hazards and take reasonable measures to protect their safety.
You are particularly entitled to feel safe when you enter a store, restaurant, or other commercial property. If you or a member of your family has been seriously injured on a commercial property, or if you have lost a member of your family due to an accident that occurred on an unsafe commercial property, the personal injury attorneys of Tawwater Law can help you obtain the compensation to which you are entitled. When it comes to handling commercial premises liability lawsuits, our Oklahoma City, OK lawyers have a history of successful verdicts and settlements that truly distinguish us from our peers. We would be privileged to put our skills and experience to work for you.
Please contact The Tawwater Law Firm today to arrange for an evaluation of your premises liability case.
What Are Your Rights as an Invitee to a Commercial Property?
Every time you walk into a store, a restaurant, or any other property that publicly offers goods or services in exchange for money, you are classified as an invitee under the law. This is because the commercial entity has invited you, whether implicitly or explicitly, to enter its property and make a financial transaction.
Included in this invitation is an understanding that the party responsible for the maintenance of the property will have taken all reasonable measures to ensure the safety of invitees to the property. If there is any potential hazard that could endanger the invitees, this party must take reasonable steps to protect invitees from that hazard and warn them about it. This includes not only hazards an owner or manager knows about but also hazards that an owner or manager should reasonably know about. Ignorance of potential hazards to public safety due to failure to perform proper maintenance duties does not excuse owners or managers of properties from being liable for injuries caused by the presence of these hazards.
