Failure to perform any contractual term without a legitimate legal reason constitutes breach of contract, no matter if the contract is written or oral. Courts also recognize implied contracts when the circumstances of an interaction establish that it would be unfair or gratuitously beneficial to one of the parties to deny the existence of a contract. We regularly represent businesses and individuals in contract disputes involving sales of goods, covenants not to compete, exclusivity clauses, and many other issues. Whether you need assistance enforcing or defending your contract rights, Feldman & Wallach can help you protect your interests.
Insurance Coverage / Bad Faith
Insurance companies owe a duty of good faith and fair dealing to the people who they insure. Breach of this duty gives rise to a civil tort action, and the aggrieved policyholder may be able to recover for direct economic harms, as well as non-economic losses such as pain and suffering and emotional distress. Bad faith actions on the part of the insurance company can range from unreasonably delaying the processing of a claim or refusing to defend an insured, to denying benefits or even canceling a policy altogether. When an insurance company acts unreasonably, we will work tirelessly to ensure that our clients receive their promised benefits.
If you or a loved one has been hurt in an accident, we have experience handling personal injury cases, which compensate injured individuals for the negligence, recklessness, or wrongful act of others. Generally, plaintiffs may recover for economic harm, such as medical expenses and lost wages, as well as less tangible damages such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress.
Along with claims arising from automobile accidents and dangerous products, our attorneys have litigated cases under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), which permits private parties to sue the United States in a federal court for most torts committed by persons acting on behalf of the United States. We also have expertise in claims involving Valley Fever, a serious and sometimes deadly fungus infection increasingly affecting inmates and people from all walks of life throughout California.
