When you’re walking around, you aren’t usually considering every single possible hazard that could result in injury. You expect to be relatively safe when going about your day. Unfortunately, sometimes accidents do happen and serious injuries can occur. If you’ve been injured in Oregon, you will need to understand premises liability to start understanding your legal rights to compensation.
In Oregon, premises liability law involves the duty of property owners (and occupiers) to maintain their property in such a way as to reasonably prevent injuries. This means they must take all necessary precautions, maintain the area, or post warning signs if an area is hazardous.
Slip and falls are the most common premises liability accidents in Oregon, and they can be the result of many things: water on the floor, icy sidewalks, uneven pavement, etc. Because every jurisdiction has slightly different laws regarding premises liability, you should call an experienced Oregon premises liability attorney to get an evaluation of the strength of your case.
