Not only does our team know how to effectively navigate the courts in these areas, but Evans Law also has a reputation with local insurers and other local companies, including nursing homes and businesses within the financial sector.
Insurers not only provide compensation to victims after certain types of losses, such as personal injuries but they may also provide financial products, such as annuities and life insurance policies. When offering to compensate the injured, as well as when marketing financial products to seniors, insurers sometimes engage in dishonest tactics and must be held accountable by experienced attorneys.
Major insurers in the California which provide life insurance and annuities include Prudential of America, Anthem, Aegon, Metropolitan, New York Life, Jackson, John Hancock and many others. Evans Law can offer assistance to victims of financial elder abuse who were misled or sold inappropriate policies or investment products by these insurers or by financial and investment advisors.
Because of our strong local reputation, we can aggressively advocate for our clients to help them obtain compensation through settlement, which, in many cases, will make court proceedings unnecessary. We are also prepared to litigate on our clients’ behalf in state and federal courts in California, including class action claims against annuity and insurance providers.

Victims of fraudulent or financially abusive behavior must understand the legal remedies available to them.
