Experiencing a sudden fall is painful and traumatic. When it occurs in a public place, an element of embarrassment often adds to the painful experience.

If you or a close family member were injured by a fall and suffered significant damages, a slip-and-fall lawyer in Tulsa is ready to help.

Where and How Do Slip and Fall Accidents Happen?
Slip-and-fall accidents occur when there’s a fall hazard in a public space or private business property. Fall hazards like loose or broken floorboards, unmarked level changes, broken walkways, dangling cords, wet floors, or loose carpets and tiles should be addressed promptly by property owners. Failing to correct or repair a fall hazard leaves property owners liable for damages. Slip-and-fall accident claims commonly come from falls in businesses including the following:
- Public pools
- Parking lots
Some slip-and-fall accidents happen at work, in which case, a workplace accident attorney from Dan Davis Law can help.
Common Injuries in Personal Injury Claims
A bad fall can cause serious injuries with significant impacts on the victim and their family. Some of the most common injuries in slip-and-fall accident claims include the following:
- Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Fractures of the limbs or hip
- Soft tissue damage
- Cuts and bruises
- Broken teeth and facial injuries
When a serious injury occurs during a fall, and the fall directly results from negligence, the victim shouldn’t be left with the unexpected burden of financial damages as well as pain and suffering.
Proving Liability in a Slip and Fall Accident in Tulsa
When a property owner fails to take the measures that another reasonable person would have in the same circumstances to prevent injuries to those lawfully on the property, they are liable for damages. In Oklahoma, the injury victim bears the burden of proving liability in injury claims, including slip-and-fall accidents. Proving liability in slip-and-fall accidents requires demonstrating the following:
- That the property owner owed a duty of care to take reasonable measures to prevent injuries
- They breached this duty through an act of negligence
- The negligent breach of duty directly caused the injury
- The injury victim suffered significant economic and non-economic damages from the injury
An attorney from Dan Davis Law will diligently investigate the circumstances of your fall to determine the liable party, prove their negligence, and document evidence of their liability so you can fully recover your damages. An investigation typically requires examining the accident report, any evidence documented at the scene, photos, surveillance or security camera videos, and your medical report. You can maximize your chances of recovering damages by snapping photos at the accident scene and taking the names of any eyewitnesses to the fall.
Damages in Personal Injury Claims
Injuries in slip-and-fall accidents can quickly become expensive as well as painful. Medical bills may pile up at the same time you’re unable to return to work due to your injury, treatment, and recovery time. A successful slip-and-fall claim in Tulsa can bring compensation for damages such as the following:
- Medical bills
- Future medical bills
- Reimbursement for lost income
- Future income loss and diminished earning capacity due to injury-related disability
- Pain and suffering
Serious injuries have serious consequences, often with ripple effects that impact the entire family. It’s important to document evidence of your damages by undergoing a thorough medical evaluation, obtaining a complete medical report with your prognosis and your doctor’s recommendations for treatment, and saving receipts for medical bills and related expenses.
An attorney from Dan Davis Law will calculate the maximum in damages to help make things right so you can move forward after the distressing experience of a bad slip-and-fall injury in Tulsa.
