My father was my beneficiary but passed away in 1988. My mother had told me that she became the beneficiary. My stepfather recently passed away and my mother is in early demensia so we are getting all legal paperwork together. I found a photocopy of her updating the policy, but no original. Neither...

If the life insurance policy truly belongs to you, then all you have to do is call the life insurance company and ask, and you can update the beneficiary anytime you want. If you have been paying the premiums, then the life insurance policy probably belongs to you. If you have not been paying the...Read more »
You need to contact the insurance company immediately and notify them. My advice is get a Post Office Box and send a formal letter to the insurance company giving them that address. Most likely you will need to file a police report for the criminal actions that took place, which I see at least 4...Read more »

Now you need to determine how they figure that, and if what you get will allow you to repair the car to the level it can be inspected. If there are problems with that or other...Read more »
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... Read more »
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.

My second vehicle was parked on the street and was not occupied. Another driver crashed into my vehicle causing a lot of damage. The other driver does have insurance. Will that driver’s insurance company be required to pay for the damage or will my state laws give them an ‘out’ since I was... Read more »
That is frustrating situation to say the least!

I went through a claims experience that I didn’t appreciate because I was feeling pushed by my employer to sign off before I felt I was back to normal. She has done this on multiple occasions I have found out. Not looking to sue for money. But I wish to anonymously notify the correct agency so... Read more »
The 2014 Administrative Workers’ Compensation Act allowed employers to “opt out” of the state workers’ compensation system as long as they provided equal or better benefits. Since that time, the Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down the “opt out” provision. Employers can self-insure, but...Read more »
Sorry I didn't see this sooner. YES, you should hire an attorney, if you haven't already. Representing yourself in Federal Court is much more difficult than in state courts, as I am sure you have learned by now.

I was given the key by the owner. I did take a drive her car for a while before being arrested, whereas the car was returned to either the insurance company or the owner. There was no damage to the car. However, they are suing me (insurance company) for a sum of money equaling 6,800 dollars... Read more »
