Experienced Premises Liability Lawyer in Edmond, OK
Property owners have a legal responsibility to maintain reasonably safe conditions on their premises, and to warn visitors of hazards to prevent accidents from occurring. When they fail to do this and it results in a visitor getting seriously injured, the victim may make a premises liability claim to recover compensation from the at-fault party. These claims often involve slip/trip-and-fall accidents, staircase falls, and construction site accidents. At The Cotton Law Firm, PLLC, you can partner with an experienced premises liability lawyer to represent you in your claim.

We Fight Aggressively for Those Injured by Unsafe Property Conditions
Generally, property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises safe for visitors, promptly clean up spills and other hazards, and warn of conditions that could result in injury. Common ways that people suffer injuries include:
- Uneven floor surfaces
- Unmarked or poorly marked changes in elevation
- Wet floors
- Broken sidewalks
- Broken steps
- Unlit stairwells
- Construction site defects
In these cases, it can be challenging to prove who was at-fault, and if the accident was truly caused by the property owner's negligence. For example, if a new safety hazard appeared without the property owner knowing, and a visitor was injured before the property owner reasonably had a chance to become aware of the hazard, there is no valid premises liability claim to be made. An experienced premises liability attorney knows how to recover the evidence needed to show that the property owner knew or reasonably should have known about the hazard and chose to act negligently anyway.
