Oklahoma Slip & Fall Injuries
Slip and fall accidents arising from the negligence of others can occur anywhere, from public property such as shopping mall to private property like your next door neighbor's deck. Oklahoma property owners and businesses have a duty to provide a safe environment.
Slip and fall accidents are the number one cause of injuries in public buildings, hotels, and restaurants, where 70% of them occurred on flat surfaces.
Unfortunately, many people are injured each year in Oklahoma due to failure of the property owner to maintain a safe environment or fail to warn about unsafe conditions. If you slipped and fell or tripped and fell on someone else's property, you may be entitled to compensation.

Even if you were injured on a friend's or family member's property, it may be possible to receive compensation for your injuries from an insurance company without damaging your relationship. Regardless of where your slip and fall injury occurred, it is wise to consult with an attorney who can advise you on your options.
There are 4 types of general slip and fall accidents:
- Trip-and-fall - where there is a foreign object in a walking path
- Slip-and-fall - when the interface of the shoe and floor fails
- Stump-and-fall - where there is an obstruction in the walking surface
- Step-and-fall - where there is an unforeseen hole or failure in the walking surface
Both the injured person and property owner can be held to varying degrees of accountability for a slip and fall injury. The property owner has the responsibly to keep property safe, while each person has a duty to watch where they are going.
Preferably, an accident report should be completed at the time of the slip and fall noting what happened, the conditions that may have caused the fall, and any witnesses. This is typical for most businesses, but it is not required by Oklahoma law. If possible include information such as:
- Who was present
- The comments made by witnesses when you fell
- A description of the circumstances
- Photos of the area
- Medical reports of injuries sustained
