Fraud Claims

Fraud Claims Attorney in Orange County, California

Fraud claims can exist in many forms.  They can arise from both intentional and negligent misrepresentations.  They can arise from affirmative representations that are false or omission of representations.  The representations have to be of a material fact, without which you would not have taken actions that resulted in detriment to you.  Moreover, your reliance on the misrepresentation has to be justifiable. Last, you have to establish that you suffered injury for which you need to be compensated.

Unlike other claims, California has heightened specificity requirements when it comes to alleging a claim for fraud.  Fraud allegations are serious and California wants to ensure that the person summoned to court under allegations of fraud has enough information to defend him or herself.  A claim for fraud not containing these specific allegations for fraud may not be allowed to move forward in court.
