What Is An Examination Under Oath?

An examination under oath (EUO) is when an insurance provider requires the insured to appear in court and give oral answers to a series of questions. Under oath, you are constrained to tell the truth and answer the questions with your entire knowledge. Otherwise, you are subject to further penalties and loss of coverage. Generally, these questions are pointed at the circumstances and facts surrounding the amount of loss according to the insured.

If you are not sure what step to take, you should discuss your case with our loyal and experienced New York debt collection attorneys. Call our White Plains office at 914-821-6922.

When Is An Examination Under Oath Used?

More and more frequently, insurance companies require an examination under oath for proof of loss of the insured. When the loss is undocumented or for any reason suspected, the insurance provider can ask to have an EUO. Insurance providers can claim that even if your policy doesn't specifically address an examination under oath, RC 48.18.460 (which states proof of loss — furnishing forms — may require oath) was amended to permit it.

Your Rights In Examinations Under Oath

What does this mean for you? You will need a lawyer you trust and feel comfortable with to give you the legal advice and direction you need to present the facts. While the insurance company bringing you to the EUO will provide their own lawyer, it is important to have your own legal representation to advise you. If you mistakenly present inaccurate facts or make an untrue statement, your carrier could void your coverage for damages.

Approaching Your Case As A Claimant

Claimants, or uninsured individuals, will find themselves in a situation where they need to appear for an EUO if they are involved with or responsible for an insurance claim. If the issue brought forward deals with property damage or any other matter, be sure to have an experienced lawyer handle your case to help ensure a successful EUO. If the examination is being performed in a pre-suit case, it is important to present all the facts in a way that best represents you and your case during the claim investigation stage.

If you are a claimant and are being asked to appear for an EUO by an insurance provider, call us today at 914-821-6922 for more information on how you can get the experienced representation offered by our New York attorney.
