Owasso, OK asked in Personal Injury and Insurance Bad Faith for Oklahoma

Q: Where can I find the full list of laws or rules for Examination Under Oath in Oklahoma?

The 1 code listed is very vague. In California the list of EUO is at least 2 pages long on their website and it describes what is allowed and not allowed under EUO. Why is Oklahoma laws so vague concerning EUO? I’m not a policy holder and I’m a non driver on the policy, I’m also not a resident of Oklahoma per the TAG agency and Virginia DMV. I once was a resident of Oklahoma in 2016 until I moved to Virginia. My husband moved us back to Oklahoma but I never claimed or renewed my Oklahoma ID. I’m still a resident of Virginia and unfortunately I was injured here in Oklahoma in a auto accident. Sum it up a dealership lied about the safety of our vehicle after a tornado had it for its toy. Dealership sent us on our way and the brakes didn’t work properly, slid off the road, seatbelt didn’t work, and I hit my knees in the dash. Torn meniscus, bone taken, and surgery. Now Farmers Insurance is demanding EUO after it started as a recorded statement. Oklahoma is vague in anything. Kristina H.

A: An Oklahoma attorney could answer you best, but your question remains open for two weeks. As a general matter, there might not be a great deal of EUO-specific law out there. It could possibly be addressed in state insurance regulations, either expressly or impliedly, as measures permitted by carriers to undertake. You could check your policy (not just the declarations sheet, but the entire 20-30 page package). It could possibly be there, even if not specifically mentioned, impliedly as part of allowable measures permitted by the carrier to investigate, validate, or deny a claim. The rules of evidence could be applicable, in terms of the admissibility of information for future proceedings (prior consistent statements, prior inconsistent statements, impeachment of witnesses, etc.). If you are represented by an Oklahoma attorney, they would really be in the best position to outline for you relevant Oklahoma law. Good luck
