Assess The Compensation You’re Entitled To Accurately
It’s common for victims of slip and fall accidents to underestimate how much medical treatment they’ll need after their accident. Making this error can lead to them demanding not enough compensation from the business or person who caused their slip and fall. Because of this, they might need to pay some of their medical expenses with their own money.
When you ask Nadrich & Cohen for help, we’ll fight to help you avoid this scenario by conducting a thorough assessment of your damages before we proceed in your slip and fall case. The legal team at Nadrich & Cohen has been handling slip and fall cases for over 30 years, so you can rest assured that our assessment will be extremely accurate.

Of course, by working with Nadrich & Cohen, you won’t have to know how to get through these scenarios on your own. The legal team at Nadrich & Cohen has been navigating California’s civil justice courts for decades and is happy to give you the advice necessary for you to get through these scenarios unscathed.
Negotiate With Insurance Companies For You
Once the insurance company representing the at-fault party knows you intend to file a slip and fall lawsuit, they will probably quickly contact you and present you with a settlement offer. This offer will almost certainly represent only a small fraction of what you actually are entitled to under California law. When Nadrich & Cohen is by your side, you will not need to worry about if you’ve received a fair settlement offer. We will negotiate the terms of any settlement for you.

We know and have what it takes in order to persuade insurance companies to offer our clients what they’re actually entitled to under the law. When you hire Nadrich & Cohen, we’ll use our vast experience and knowledge to make sure the insurance companies give you a fair deal.
Represent You In Court
Almost all of our cases settle out of court because insurance companies know that when we go to court, we win. However, if the at-fault party’s insurance company isn’t willing to offer you a fair settlement, we’ll represent you in court. There, we’ll present a convincing case to a judge and/or jury – who will then determine how much money you’re eligible to receive.
We have handled countless cases of this nature in the past. We know how to argue cases in a convincing, concise and clear manner. When you hire us, we’ll do exactly that for you.

Liability In A Slip And Fall Lawsuit
The way to recover financial compensation in a slip and fall lawsuit is to prove negligence on behalf of a property owner.
For a premises liability claim to be successful, slip and fall victims need to be able to prove that:
- A defendant owned, controlled, occupied or leased a property
- A defendant negligently used or maintained the property
- The victim was injured
- A substantial factor in causing the victim’s injuries was the negligence of the defendant
Defendants are considered negligent in the maintenance or use of their property when:
- An unreasonable risk of injury existed due to a condition on their property
- They knew or should have known about the condition
- They failed to fix the condition, adequately warn about the condition or protect others from being harmed by the condition
When considering if a defendant is negligent in a slip and fall case, California juries are instructed to consider:
- The property location
- How likely it is that someone would enter the property like the plaintiff did
- How likely harm was
- How serious the harm would probably be
- If the defendant knew about the dangerous condition or should have known about it
- How difficult it was to protect against harm caused by the condition
- How much control the defendant had over the condition
- Other factors
Proving liability in a slip and fall case can be complicated. A lot of evidence needs to be gathered. Experts must often be hired in order to testify on a plaintiff’s behalf. Nadrich & Cohen has been proving the negligence of property owners in slip and fall cases since 1990. Call us today for a free consultation so we can put our decades of experience to work for you.
