What is Premises Liability in Oklahoma?

Premises liability is a legal concept that holds property owners accountable for injuries that occur on their property due to unsafe conditions. Under Oklahoma law, specifically Okla. Stat. tit. 76, § 80, property owners owe different levels of duty to visitors depending on their status as invitees, licensees, or trespassers:

  1. Invitees: Individuals invited onto the property for business purposes, such as customers, are owed the highest duty of care.
  2. Licensees: Guests who are on the property for their own purposes, but with the owner’s consent, receive a moderate level of care.
  3. Trespassers: Even unauthorized visitors may be owed a certain degree of care, particularly if their presence is anticipated or if they are children.

The core responsibilities that property owners have to those who visit their premises are fairly straightforward:

  1. Property owners must regularly inspect their premises for potential hazards; and
  2. Should they identify any potential hazards, promptly address them or adequately warn visitors of their presence. 

If a property owner fails to adequately address a hazard on their property that they know about or reasonably should have known about, and someone is injured as a result, the property owner may be held liable for the injured party’s damages.
