California Law Allows an Insured Who Relies On Representations from the Insurance Company To Toll the Statute of Limitations

An insurance company may be estopped from raising a statute of limitations defense if the policyholder can show that he or she relied on representations by the insurance company. An insurance company’s representation that the policy does not cover the claim does not constitute grounds for estoppel. There must be a misrepresentation of fact that can lead to estoppel.
