A: An Oregon attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. It's difficult to speculate what could have caused the insurance company's change in position without knowing additional details. Whatever the reason, something raised the suspicion of the claims examiner. You do not mention that medical records were requested, but that financial and phone/text records were. That suggests this could involve a lost wages claim. A local attorney could probably offer a more meaningful assessment of the matter if they were able to review the file, and the basis for the claims examiner requesting additional information. Good luck
