Act Quickly — Waiting Too Long Could Be Costly

Unfortunately some people consider that filing a lawsuit to recover money after a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident is trying to "work the system." Our experience indicates that is rare. We have successfully handled numerous legitimate premises liability claims involving serious injuries.

At The Law Offices of Ossie Brown, we will take your situation seriously and offer honest counsel on whether a premises liability action makes sense. We have helped individuals and families in Baton Rouge and surrounding communities obtain fair compensation needed to recover from injuries.

An initial consultation is free, and you will not pay any attorney fees unless we negotiate a settlement or obtain a court judgment in your favor.

Don't Let A Stereotype Prevent You From Filing Your Legitimate Claim

Most commonly, these cases involve stores and service businesses, but a homeowner can also be held liable for an accident on his or her property. In fact, all property owners have a legal obligation to keep their premises reasonably safe. They may face liability for injuries caused by conditions such as:

  • A slippery substance on the floor, causing someone to slip and fall — we successfully handled a case for a woman in her 40s who suffered neck injuries after slipping and falling in a restaurant
  • An object that forms a dangerous obstruction, causing a person to trip — for example, in another past case, a woman in her 60s suffered shoulder and back injuries after tripping over a chain at an auto repair shop
  • Precariously stacked merchandise that falls on someone
  • Doors and stairways in disrepair

Following this type of injury, remember to always ask for an incident report to be filed and request a copy.

Our thorough approach has earned positive results for many clients. If we believe you may have a case, e will move quickly to preserve surveillance videos, gather witness testimony and find other evidence in your favor. You can also depend on our concern and full support for your medical recovery.

Hesitation can be costly, and we urge you to take prompt action after any accident on someone else's property. Please get the medical attention you need and speak with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
