I would need more information to determine whether your insurer was justified in denying your claim. For starters, the insurer usually sends you a letter stating all of the reasons for its denial, and citing the applicable policy provisions. If there is some kind of exclusion that fits the facts...Read more »

Its impossible to answer that question without knowing more about what happened. Is it a settlement with your own insurer or a third party? Is there any way you can claim that you were fraudulently induced to sign the agreement? Was there a mutual mistake of fact that caused you to sign the...Read more »
Filing a complaint with the California Department of Insurance does not toll the contractual statute of limitations. However, the contractual statute of limitations is tolled during the time the claim is open. Therefore, the statute begins to run when the event triggering the claim occurs. It is...Read more »
A California attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. Until you are able to have a meaningful and detailed consult with a local attorney, it sounds like an interpretation of law more than a representation. As to whether the interpretation is correct, that could be a...Read more »
I looked at the information in the link you sent. Thank you for responding.
First, I searched for "diminished", then for "only" in order to locate anything that states that property is only the physical article that was damaged and nothing else that is commonly also... Read more »

There was an accident that happened over 2 years ago and I received a call saying that I have a Subrogation claim against my a claim agency called Recovery Partners. They're saying that I have to pay $6500 or they'll file a Lawsuit against me.
They called me 4 days after I reported that I was in a collision and informing them that I was at fault. They said that they will cancel my policy and will not cover the accident because I did not report my 15 yr old brother as a household member and he was in the vehicle at the time of the...

A nursing home has made changes to my mom's insurance. My mom had Medicaid through the state of CA which was Health plan of San Joaquin. As of April 2020 , HPSJ was dropped and now she only has Straight Medicaid. I only found out after receiving bills from her Doctors telling me She owed for... Read more »
Any answer to this question would require a lot more information: medical records of your mom's condition in April 2020, documents showing the Home's authority to act on your mom's behalf, documents from HPSJ showing how the change in service was accomplished, research showing...Read more »
The insurance has already called them more than once to inform them that there is an allowance but still they are overcharging me. A financial agreement was signed and the dentists stated on the agreement that those were the allowed insurance and treatment charges but it was all a lie and fraud. My... Read more »
You could file such a lawsuit, but IMO what you really have is a run of the mill breach of contract suit against the dentist. This really is not something to be excited about, and it is not going to go to the Supreme Court. You should write a calm and polite letter to the dentist with a copy of...Read more »

There was one occupied and one unoccupied child seat at the time of my car accident. Progressive says they will only pay $125 to replace the occupied seat. Is this acceptable per CA carseat laws? I was under the assumption they should be responsible for fully reimbursing the cost of both seats.... Read more »
IMO the issue is not whether the seat was occupied, but whether it was damaged so as to make it dangerous to continue to use for a child's safety. You have asked several questions about this and Mr. Light told you what to do to go to small claims to obtain satisfaction, which is your best...Read more »
I was involved in a minor car collision (5-10 mph) approx. 2 months ago. Progressive found me not at fault for the accident, and Geico also said their driver was not at fault. I already had to pay a $1,000 deductible to get my car fixed, but since it is now a word vs. word situation are there... Read more »
Small Claims against the other driver is an option if you can prove s/he was at fault. You will need Progressive's consent to pursue the other driver since Progressive now owns part of the claim for property damage. You will need the receipt/estimate for repair, proof of payment of the $1k...Read more »
