Have you been denied a claim by your insurer? Perhaps you have been injured by a defective or dangerous consumer product. In both instances, these are cases of wrongful behavior on the part of large and powerful corporations, whether through bad faith or negligence. These types of incidents can lead to harm that you should not have to suffer. It can be daunting to try to go up against such corporate entities, with all of their wealth and power.

Insurance Bad Faith
Many types of insurance are required in California, such as for your vehicle and your home. You likely spend years paying for these policies and expect your insurer to perform when a valid claim arises. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. By unreasonably delaying or denying a claim, such a company can cost you financial, emotional, and even physical losses. This is known as “bad faith.” Bad faith actions can occur on any policy, whether for a homeowner, business owner, motorist, for health care, and more.
Bad faith can include denials, delays, underpayment, failure to investigate your claim, or cancellation of your policy. For example, in California where fires are prevalent, many companies try to avoid paying on a homeowners’ claims for smoke or water damages. Our firm has even handled many cases where policyholders have been wrongfully accused of fraud when submitting their claims.
We can help you fight these companies by seeking the damages you deserve over insurance bad faith. These are complicated matters that can be difficult to prove which is why you need an experienced attorney on the case.
Just as we expect insurers to stand behind their policies, we also expect the products sold to us by manufacturers to be safe for use as directed. Where a consumer product has defects that lead to consumer injuries, it can result in product liability. This means that you may be entitled to be compensated for your injuries in claims against negligent manufacturers and sellers. Product liability cases can involve any type of product, from defective airbags, tires, and brakes to dangerous pharmaceuticals leading to serious side effects for patients, and more.
Product liability is another form of personal injury law. In these cases, products may have defects in the way they are designed, manufactured or assembled, or in their marketing. Marketing defects can include inadequate or missing directions for use or failure to warn of risks of use. In product liability claims, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other injury-related damages.
What Is The Statute of Limitations for Product Liability Claims in California?
The statute of limitations for product liability claims in California is generally two years from the date of the injury. This means that individuals who have been injured by a defective product must file their claims within two years of the injury. It's important to note that specific circumstances may impact the application of the statute of limitations, and individuals should consult legal professionals for precise guidance regarding their specific situations.
