What is an Examination Under Oath?

An examination under oath (EUO) is a formal proceeding during which an insured, under oath and in the presence of a court reporter, is questioned by an insurance company representative. The representative of the insurance company asks questions of the insured regarding the loss, how it occurred, the property damage, and anything else relevant to the insurance claim dispute. 

Almost every insurance policy permits the insurance company to take an examination under oath or a different examination that can help them decide how they want to handle the claim. If your insurance company is asking you for an EUO, never do this without your attorney present.  

It is very important you hire a lawyer to go with you to the EUO to protect your claim. Insurance companies may try to misconstrue your words against you regarding your case. Also the questions can be very technical, and there can be demands for various documents.
