Medical costs for falls cost over $50 billion in the United States in 2015, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We’ve been consistently obtaining policy limits recoveries for Angelinos injured in slip and fall accidents for decades, helping Los Angeles residents obtain recoveries to help pay for their time spent off work, medical bills and more.
The insurance companies often offer us policy limits settlements out of court because they respect and fear us enough to know we will defeat them in court. Conversely, the insurance companies will not respect or fear you if you aren’t represented by a lawyer. They’ll laugh as they offer you a pittance, daring you to sue them since they know you can’t defeat their big-money lawyers without an attorney of your own.
The insurance companies also want you to talk to them because they’re confident they can trick you into admitting that your slip and fall accident was your fault. They’re confident they can do this because they’re trained to do it. You don’t want to talk to the insurance companies; it’s dangerous. You need experienced Los Angeles slip and fall attorneys like the lawyers at Nadrich & Cohen to talk to the insurance companies for you while you sit back, relax and focus on injury recovery.
Your injury recovery will involve the finest doctors in Southern California if you retain our services, and they’ve agreed to not charge our clients until our clients’ cases are over. We, too, will not charge you until your case is over, and we won’t charge you at all if we don’t obtain a recovery for you. Our only fee is a small percentage if your recovery and we only charge it if we obtain a recovery.

California Premises Liability Law
Premises liability law is the central theme in a slip and fall lawsuit. California juries are given specific instructions as to what must be proven in premises liability lawsuits. The instructions state it must be proven that the plaintiff was harmed and that the negligence of the owner, lessee, occupier or controller of the property the harm occurred on played a substantial role in the harm.
California juries are instructed that it is negligent to fail to use reasonable care to keep your property reasonably safe. It mandates using reasonable care to discover and fix, prevent access to or warn about conditions which aren’t safe and might injure people. The juries are told to consider many factors when considering if reasonable care was used, such as if the defendant knew or should have known about the unsafe condition, or the location of the property.
Negligence relating specifically to unsafe conditions is defined by CACI No. 1003 as failing to fix, prevent access to or warn about an unsafe condition one knows or should know about.
We can obtain you a slip and fall accident recovery by proving that your slip and fall accident was the result of somebody else’s negligence.
