Q: What type of lawyer would handle disputes with insurance companies over car accident involving a fatality?
A: You should talk to a personal injury attorney in California. If you go to the "find a lawyer" section of Justia, you should be able to find someone in your area.
A: It depends on what the dispute is over. If the dispute with the insurance company pertains to coverage and whether they should provide you with a defense, you should contact an insurance lawyer.
Depending on the facts:
1. Personal injury Attorney
2. Uninsured Motorist, Underinsured Motorist Attorney
3. Bad Faith Attorney.
Most personal injury attorneys can do 1 and 2.

a car accident lawyer, referred to as a Personal Injury Attorney.
call one local, though.
if there is an injury, and you were not at fault, most of us would accept the case on a contingency fee. That means the lawyer will only take a percentage of what he/she gets.
absent a good injury, a lawyer would probably want to handle it on an hourly.
