Its been about 3 years and the case is still open,. It was a car accident and did go to arbitration,where the bad faith happened. I have seen the courts liberally rule in favor of amending complaint if it is a clerical error/oversight and this indeed was. I know insurance bad faith is two years.
I don't want to file breach of contract for failure to fully investigate(that was bad faith, too).complaint filed; motion to compel arbitration filed 3 years ago and arbitration happened about six months later; so, what I am focused/confused on, is if I can add a bad faith cause of action three years later? It was a clerical error/oversight and should have filed it when I had to file a petition to compel arbitration for delay three years later (that had a different case number). I did have an attorney that couldn't finish the case due to personal issues and had to almost close their practice, so I had to finish myself.
