Unfortunately, automobile warranties are not considered insurance and there is no way to sue the warranty company for bad faith. At most, you have a breach of contract claim worth $731. Give the warranty company a reasonable chance to authorize the repair. If they do not, your best bet would be...Read more »
No one knows the allegations of every lawsuit filed, but the answer to your question is "no." Lawsuits do not allege murder or attempted murder. The closest you would get to that would be a count for wrongful death. Whether there is a lawsuit for wrongful death against an insurer that...Read more »

You need an insurance coverage lawyer. You did not supply enough detail to get into the specifics of your case, but it sounds like you might have recourse against the insurance company if it paid out based on a forged document and you did not get the money.

A driver cut in front of me and slammed on their brakes. My dashcam clearly shows no cars in front of me when this driver cuts and attempts to get me to hit their car.

Letters were sent to both Insurance co. and mitagation co. about appliances (outside) being ruined and asked for replacement payment. Both denied responsibility.

I would have sued both of them in the same case, and if they wanted to blame each other -- let them. They are both responsible for what happened. As far as you're concerned, it does not matter how you allocate the loss.

Both the mitigation company and the insurance company are responsible. The mitigation company because they should have known not to leave appliances wrapped in plastic in your backyard. Thus, they negligently caused the property damage. The insurance company has a duty under the insurance...Read more »
A California attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Nationwide, claimants do sometimes include interest in filing arbitrations for health care services (I cannot speak for California rules with AAA or other arbitration forums). But as a practical matter, it...Read more »
I was at a drive through coffee shop in Flagstaff, Arizona. It was warming up that morning and the ice and snow melted and slid off the business’ roof which ended up landing on top of my hood causing damage.

Yes, it's an asset. You need to request relief from bankruptcy to proceed against the limits of the insurance policy. Also, the contractor's insurance policy does not provide coverage for shoddy work. It does provide coverage if your property is damaged by shoddy work, e.g., you have...Read more »

My business has gone down hill because I DO NOT HAVE TRANSPORTATION. I paid for the highest package and never received one ounce of what their contract stated. This is fraud and I need an attorney asap. I am in San Diego but my insurance agent is in Beverly Hills.
I suspect there is more to the story, but basically you have probably have an insurance bad faith claim against the insurance company, not the agent. I would contact the adjuster and/or the adjuster's supervisor and find out why they have not settled your claim. Sometimes, the resolution of...Read more »
What is your question? If you are asking if you have a case, I would need the entire story. Failure to investigate, by itself does not make for a bad faith case. There has to be damages caused by the insurance company's unreasonable claims handling.
