Los Angeles, CA asked in Insurance Bad Faith for California

Q: Where can I find a lawyer for my auto insurance claim?

I am looking for a lawyer to help me resolve my auto insurance claim. I got my car stolen last august and retrieved it the same month. My insurance refused to total the car out because they claimed it was fixable. It’s been 9 months and my car is still not repaired. I want to know if there is something I can do to get rid of this car. I have been having to pay out of pocket for a rental car while paying insurance and my car note. I have not been able to use my car. My insurance refused to cover me for a rental pass the 90 days. This car has been a financial strain for me and has disturbed my peace of mind. Is there something I can do ? I would like help form a lawyer to help me resolve this issue.

A: Whether or not you have a bad faith case against your insurance company comes down to a lot of details you did not provide. If you do have a case, you should be able to recover the entire rental car costs (not just the 90 days) plus other damages including financial damage, emotional distress, attorney's fees and prejudgment interest.
