When good folks are injured in car crashes in North Miami it can affect more than just the driver and passenger. Their families are impacted. Co-workers can be affected. In a perfect world, the driver who caused the accident would simply admit fault. That driver’s insurance company would then step in and pay for your lost wages, medical expenses, and some reasonable amount of money for your suffering and pain. But in reality, it never happens that way.
Once you are in a North Miami car accident, there are many hurdles for you to overcome. Most of those obstacles come from insurance companies and it is not limited to the other driver’s insurance company. Your own automobile insurance company may make it difficult for you too.
Your own insurance company can require you to fill out specific forms and give a recorded statement. If you get medical treatment and use your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage to pay for it, your own insurance company can require you to go to a designated location to give an Examination Under Oath (EUO)Examination Under Oath after North Miami Car Accident
As if being in a North Miami car crash wasn’t bad enough, then you get a certified letter from your insurance company demanding that you appear for an Examination Under Oath. Now you wonder if you did something wrong. Why does your own insurance company now want to take your sworn testimony?
Nearly all car insurance policies contain duties and requirements for the insured person. One of the main duties is to appear for an EUO as often as reasonably necessary. Unless you have a North Miami car accident attorney to advise and guide you, it is basically up to the insurance company to decide how often they need an EUO. If you have a lawyer, then it is a different game. First, the insurance company is unlikely to take advantage of you through the cooperation clause of your insurance policy. Second, a North Miami car accident lawyer can make sure the EUO is properly conducted.
What happens at an EUO? You will likely go to either the insurance company’s claims office or a court reporter’s office. Then an insurance lawyer will have you sworn in and ask you a series of questions. Generally, they can ask about anything that is relevant to your claim such as:
- Your address
- Who live with you
- How many cars are in the household
- Your prior medical history
- Your claim history
- Prior accidents, injuries and claims
- How you found your doctor or chiropractor
- Each visit and the treatment you received
- The facts of your accident
- Your employment history
- Your job and pay
That is just some of the areas you can be questioned about and keep in mind that is your insurance company. You haven’t even started to deal with the at fault driver’s insurance company. That insurance company can be expected to be at least as difficult as your own after your North Miami car crash. That is only one of the reasons why you need the advice of a North Miami car accident lawyer.Personal Injury Lawyers Serving North Miami
