If so, you need a skilled lawyer by your side. An examination under oath is a formal proceeding in which your insurer can question you about your insurance claim when you are under oath. The answers you provide during the examination can have a significant impact on your insurance claim.

About Examinations Under Oath
Examinations under oath are often required by insurance companies. Often, your policy may state that your carrier can demand an examination under oath and can also demand your records and documents relating to the claim.
During the examination, your insurance company will ask you questions about your claim. You should be prepared for more than just a few questions; in most cases, questioning can last for several hours. Representation from an experienced attorney is critical for several reasons:
- Your insurance carrier will likely be represented by a lawyer who understands the law and uses strategies to elicit answers from you that benefit your carrier.
- The information you provide during the examination may be used to discredit your claim or give the insurer a reason to lower your award or deny your claim entirely. A simple mistake in your testimony can have much more serious consequences.
- Carriers sometimes make examinations more difficult by scheduling them at inconvenient locations or times or requesting documents that are difficult to produce or that they are not entitled to.
Our law firm understands how insurance carriers operate and how they conduct examinations under oath. We can help you ensure that you are not being abused by the insurance carrier and that your rights and interests are protected during the examination.
