    Question Can An Insurance Laywer Represent You in Small Claims Court

    My question involves court procedures for the state of: Los Angeles

    If my neighbor sues me for "property damage" on their property in small claims in Los Angeles, can my insurance company represent me under my liability coverage? I heard that in small claims one cannot bring a lawyer so I am a bit confused.

    You need to read your insurance policy in relation to your duty to inform your insurer about potential claims.

    If your neighbor sues you in small claims court and you turn the claim over to your insurance company, they would likely try to settle the claim or, failing that, advise you as to how to proceed in small claims court.

    A family I sued once, had their auto insurance company send an attorney to represent them, in small claims court. I still won, but the effort on their part was noteworthy.
