Insurance Bad Faith Lawyers in Los Angeles, California
Many policy holders are unaware that insurance companies are required, by law, to approach every claim in good faith.
Are you getting the runaround from your insurance company ?
We buy insurance policies for peace of mind. When we buy homeowners insurance to protect our home, health insurance, auto insurance, or any other type of insurance policy, we hope we will never have to use it. But we trust that when we do, our insurance company will step up and take care of us like they are required to do. That’s right. Many policyholders are unaware that insurance companies are required, by law, to approach every claim in good faith.
Unfortunately, insurance companies frequently let us down when we need them most. No matter if you are involved in a fender bender on the freeway, your house is damaged by the horrific fires caused, or your boat is damaged by a careless fisherman, insurance companies are supposed to be there to help. These unscrupulous wrongdoers irresponsibly and unfairly deny claims that they know they are required to pay, and then wear the victimized individual down with endless delays and red tape until he or she surrenders, exhausted and dispirited. This type of behavior by insurance companies is called insurance bad faith, and it is wrong. The Los Angeles insurance bad faith attorneys at Karns & Karns Personal Injury and Accident Attorneys believe policyholders should be able to use their policies to protect themselves during difficult times, and that when an insurance company unreasonably denies or delays a claim, they must be held responsible.

Frequently Asked Questions
At Karns & Karns Personal Injury and Accident Attorneys, personal injury is all we do. We handle a wide range of injury cases, including all types of motor vehicle accidents.

"Damages" is the legal term for what you have lost in the accident. Damages generally fall into two main categories, economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include monetary or quantifiable losses you have incurred, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and property damages. Non-economic damages are more difficult to quantify because they are non-monetary losses. Examples of non-economic damages include pain and suffering, depression, and loss of enjoyment of life.
Each state has its own time limit for filing a personal injury claim. This time limit is called the statute of limitations. In California, Nevada, and Texas, most personal injury claims will fall under a two-year statute of limitations. That means you have two years from the date of the injury or death to file a lawsuit. However, there are certain exceptions to these deadlines. Consider discussing your unique situation with an experienced personal injury attorney from our firm. We can help you understand how the statute of limitations in your state may affect your potential claim.
Most personal injury lawyers, like us, work on a contingency fee basis. Working on contingency means that you pay nothing upfront for legal representation. Instead, you only pay if you win your case through a settlement or verdict. You and your lawyer will agree to an amount, usually a percentage. If your case succeeds, that amount will be deducted from the verdict or settlement. If your case is not successful, then you owe the lawyer nothing.
