Insurance Law

Insurance law is the law that surrounds and governs insurance, insurance policy and insurance claims. There are three different categories that insurance laws are broken down into: regulation of the business of insurance, regulation of the content of insurance policies and regulations of claim handling. Listed below are a few questions answered by the Experts on issues related to insurance laws..

Can an insurance company call and ask a tow truck driver about information regarding a person if they were in an accident? Can they also give out personal information on the person to the driver?

If the information that the insurance company is trying to obtain is about the accident, they can ask the tow truck driver certain questions. If the information shared by the company also pertains to the accident or claim, they would still be within their rights However, if the insurance company is giving the tow truck driver a person’s whole driving history or other personal information, this would be against the law and a complaint can be filed with the State Insurance Commission.

A person’s car was wrecked in an accident. Is there any liability of the insurance agency to mandate/require proper coverage on the car as it had a loan? Would the insurance agency be liable for anything if they had not sent the proper paperwork stating the coverage on the vehicle?

The insurance agent only needs to give the minimum coverage for the jurisdiction that the person is located in. If the person had a good relationship with the insurance agent where the agent took care of the policy and made sure that it was reviewed every year, they could impose a liability for negligence on the part of the agent based on the fact that the agent and person had a good working relationship. Therefore, the agent would know if the person was protected adequately. But if the insurance agent and the person only had a distant relationship, the agent may have no obligation towards the person.

In the State of Oklahoma, if an insured authorizes a public adjuster to represent them, is it against the law for the company adjuster to still contact the insured?

In the State of Oklahoma, it is not unusual for the adjuster to continue to call the insured to discuss a claim or ask the insured questions regarding the claim. This is generally not against the law especially if the claimant is making a claim against their own insurer.

Does the State Insurance Department have the right to ask a broker for their personal finance information if an agency has filed a complaint with them?

According to the law, the department has the authority to oversee anything with regard to insurance laws since they have been appointed by the state. If the person refuses to provide the information that is needed, the department may be able to suspend their license. Therefore, it is advisable for the person to cooperate with the department and provide them with the information that they need.

In insurance, there are several laws that individuals and brokers need to abide by. While the questions above may have answered some of your questions, they could be others that you may have that are specific to your situation. In these cases, direct your queries to Experts for insights and information to help with your case.

  • Hello, State tax Commission determined a tax deficiency

    Hello, State tax Commission determined a tax deficiency while I was out of country. The final decision is based purely on a fiction and speculation by the tax commission. However the final decision was made and I have no means to provide 20% deposit and appeal it. Besides, I am out of the USA. I am a trustee and a beneficiary of several trusts (land trusts, living trusts)either directly or through an entity, and I operate a couple of bank accounts owned by entities and not me personally. I also have a self-directed roth IRA whereas this IRA accnt had funded a land trust that still exists. Are these assets in USA in any form of risk? What danger am I facing, when I return to the USA? Thank you.

  • I live in Texas. I had surgery on 1/2/2014 and my doctor is

    I live in Texas. I had surgery on 1/2/2014 and my doctor is in network so the bill was covered. All the bills were paid by the insurance company and I paid my deductible so I was 100% covered. Today a claim came through the insurance company in the amount of $6000 for a physician assistant from my doctor's office for assisting with the surgery who is also out of network for my insurance company, however I was not made aware that another provider was involved in my surgery at all, neither up front, during, or after the surgery. I only saw my provider the entire time and knew nothing of this physician assistant until this bill was submitted to my health insurance. Is it legal for the provider's office to do this without informing the patient up front?
