They Had a Duty to Keep You Safe
Under Oklahoma’s premises liability law, owners are responsible for the safety of patrons, delivery persons and other invitees. Our personal injury lawyers have successfully sued shopping malls, big box retailers, grocery stores, apartment building owners and other entities for serious injuries suffered in a slip and fall:
- Spilled liquids, squashed produce and other slippery substances
- Mopped or waxed floors without caution signs
- Electrical cords, rugs, sidewalk cracks and other tripping hazards
- Falling merchandise or sharp protrusions
While businesses are insured against such claims, the insurance company won’t settle without compelling evidence that the owner was advised of the hazard (and ignored it) or should have known of the hazard through routine upkeep and inspection.
Foshee & Yaffe investigates promptly to preserve any physical evidence — witness statements, photos of the dangerous condition (if it hasn’t been fixed) and photos of your injuries. We also look into similar injury claims, code violations, and maintenance logs. Additionally, we will seek statements from managers or employees.
If you suffered a serious injury (broken bones, head trauma, torn rotator cuff, severe lacerations or scarring, or any injury requiring surgery) in a fall, contact Foshee & Yaffe today for a free initial consultation and aggressive representation.
