Tulsa Premises Liability Lawyers
When you visit someone’s property or pick up a few things from the store on the way home from work, the last thing you expect is to wind up in the emergency room with serious injuries. However, millions of people require immediate treatment for fall-related injuries each year, and this is only one type of common property-related accident.
When a property hazard results in serious injuries, you can pursue a premises liability claim, seeking compensation from the liable party. When someone else’s negligence causes your injuries, that party should also have to cover your medical expenses and other losses. Insurance companies, however, make recovering that compensation challenging and frustrating.
This is where Aizenman Law Group comes in. Our team of Tulsa premises liability lawyers regularly represents injury victims who fell or suffered other property-related injuries. Case evaluations are always free, and we can assess your rights and address all your questions and concerns.

Premises Liability Cases We Handle
Premises liability law oversees a wide array of incidents on another person’s property due to negligence or hazardous conditions. These accidents can lead to injuries and legal claims for which victims can recover compensation from liable parties.
Our firm handles many types of premises liability cases. Even if you suffered injuries in an accident not on this list, never hesitate to contact us to discuss a possible case.
Slip and Fall Accidents
These are perhaps the most well-known premises liability incidents. They occur when someone slips, trips, or falls due to hazardous conditions like wet floors, uneven surfaces, loose carpets, or debris. These accidents can happen in various places, including grocery stores, restaurants, hotels, and shopping malls.
Property owners are responsible for providing adequate security measures to protect visitors from foreseeable criminal activities. If someone suffers an assault, robbery, or sexual assault due to inadequate security, they can hold the property owner liable.
Elevator and Escalator Accidents
Malfunctions in elevators and escalators can lead to serious injuries. These accidents can result from mechanical failures, abrupt stops, or sudden drops. Property owners and maintenance teams must ensure these devices undergo regular inspection and maintenance to prevent such incidents.
If a property owner’s dog attacks a visitor or another person lawfully on the property, the victim can hold the owner responsible for the resulting injuries. Oklahoma has strict liability laws for dog bites, making the owner liable regardless of whether they knew the dog was dangerous.
Swimming Pool Accidents
Drowning, slip and fall accidents around the pool area, and inadequate safety measures are common concerns in places with swimming pools, such as hotels, apartment complexes, and water parks.
Property owners must maintain their premises in a safe condition. Negligent maintenance can lead to accidents caused by broken stairs, faulty handrails, inadequate lighting, and more.
Retail Store Accidents
Beyond slip and falls, retail stores can pose other risks. Items falling from shelves, improperly secured displays, and overcrowded aisles can lead to injuries for customers.
Amusement Park Accidents
Malfunctions in rides, improper safety measures, or operator negligence can result in accidents at amusement parks. Due to the potential for serious injuries, amusement parks must prioritize visitor safety.
Fires and Burns
Malfunctioning smoke detectors, blocked emergency exits, or other inadequate fire safety measures can lead to devastating fires. Burns can also occur due to faulty wiring, hot surfaces, or exposure to hazardous materials.
Construction Site Accidents
Visitors or even workers on construction sites can be at risk due to uneven terrain, falling objects, inadequate signage, and unsafe equipment. Property owners and contractors must maintain safe worksites.
In all these scenarios, property owners must ensure the safety of others who lawfully enter their premises. If they fail to fulfill this duty and you suffer injuries as a result, you have grounds for a premises liability claim.
Always seek a free consultation from our team at Aizenman Law Group if you believe you have a potential premises liability case.
Common Premises Liability Accidents in Tulsa
Premises liability accidents happen regularly throughout Tulsa. You might suddenly slip and fall or suffer injuries in another property-related accident. If this happens, we are here to represent you.
Grocery stores like Reilly’s Fresh Market and Harvest Haven are bustling hubs in Tulsa, attracting many shoppers daily. Slip and fall accidents are particularly common in these establishments, often arising from wet floors, uneven surfaces, or cluttered aisles. Negligence on the part of store management to promptly address spills or provide proper signage can result in serious injuries for unsuspecting customers.
Hotels like The Grand Plaza and Riverside Inn cater to a steady stream of tourists and business travelers. Premises liability accidents in hotels can include elevator malfunctions, inadequate security leading to theft or assault, or poorly maintained walkways causing trips and falls. Hotel owners must uphold a duty of care by ensuring well-lit common areas, functioning amenities, and a safe environment to prevent accidents that can tarnish their reputation and lead to legal liability for injuries.
Tulsa’s vibrant restaurant scene also presents potential risks. Eateries like Spice Bistro and Bella Italia not only serve delicious food but also harbor the potential for accidents. Poorly maintained or overly crowded dining areas and inadequate seating arrangements can result in slip and fall incidents, placing both customers and restaurant owners at risk.
Public spaces like Woodward Park and Mohawk Park, known for their scenic beauty, are not immune to premises liability accidents. Inadequate lighting, unmaintained trails, or lack of proper signage can result in injuries for park-goers. Keeping these spaces well-maintained and safe becomes a shared responsibility between local authorities and visitors.
Premises liability accidents often boil down to a question of negligence. When business or property owners are negligent in maintaining or inspecting their premises, people can suffer serious injuries. Responsible parties should fully compensate premises liability victims through their insurance companies.

How Our Premises Liability Attorneys Seek Compensation for Your Injuries
Our team of experienced premises liability attorneys is dedicated to seeking compensation for your injuries when you suffered injuries due to negligence or hazardous conditions on someone else’s property.
We understand the complexities of premises liability cases and are well-equipped to guide you through the process of pursuing compensation through insurance claims and injury lawsuits.
In many premises liability cases, the business or property owner’s insurance policy can provide coverage for injuries that occur on their premises. Most cases begin by filing claims with the proper insurers. Our attorneys deeply understand insurance policies and the tactics insurance companies often employ to minimize payouts.
We meticulously gather evidence, including photographs, witness statements, medical records, and incident reports, to build a strong case that demonstrates the property owner’s negligence and your damages. We persuasively present all of this documentation to the insurance company and a detailed demand letter outlining the extent of your injuries, medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.
We negotiate with the insurance company to secure a fair settlement that adequately compensates you for your damages. The first offer from an insurer will rarely meet your needs. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who regularly convince insurance companies to increase their settlement offers to an amount that covers all your losses.
We advise you on every settlement offer we receive and discuss the merits of each offer with you. If the insurance company refuses to make a favorable offer, we can escalate the matter by filing a personal injury lawsuit in civil court.
Unlike some injury attorneys who push to settle every case, our premises liability attorneys will take your case to court if necessary to uphold your rights.
Filing a personal injury lawsuit allows us to present your case before a judge and jury, where we can aggressively advocate for your rights.
We craft compelling legal arguments based on the evidence we’ve gathered, demonstrating how the property owner’s negligence directly led to your injuries. Through strategic courtroom tactics and effective communication, we seek to prove liability and secure the compensation you deserve.
In premises liability injury lawsuits, we work to establish the following elements:
- Duty of care – We show that the property owner had a duty of care to maintain a safe environment for visitors.
- Breach of duty – We demonstrate how the property owner breached this duty through negligence or inadequate maintenance.
- Causation – We establish a direct link between the property owner’s breach of duty and your injuries.
- Damages – We calculate the full extent of your damages, including medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other related costs.
Our approach involves:
- Thorough investigation.
- Understanding of civil procedure.
- Strong negotiation and litigation skills tailored to the specific circumstances of your case.
We understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll that premises liability accidents can take on your life, and we are committed to seeking the compensation you need to move forward.
Ultimately, whether we’re pursuing an insurance claim or navigating a complex injury lawsuit, our primary goal is to secure the best possible outcome for you. We’ll stand by your side, offering compassionate support and determined advocacy every step of the way.
