    You should talk with a lawyer in your area immediately; you may be eligible for payments under workers compensation.

    You can file with your insurance company, pay the deductible and get your car fixed; your insurer may or may not sue the guy who hit you and get its money back, and even your deductible. But you would be better off getting an attorney involved as soon as possible.

    If you still own the property, and you are not on the policy, then if the property is destroyed, you will not be on the check from the insurance company.

    I agree you need to speak with an attorney. A POA does not permit someone to change a will after that person has died.

    First, please note that exwife may get a death certificate from the state health department. Second, there are some states which have a statute which says that if a husband and wife have life insurance policies which name the spouse as beneficiary, and there is a divorce, the ex spouse is treated as predeceasing the insured, and the proceeds pass to the next beneficiary, if any, or to the deceased's estate. In Oklahoma, the statute is 15 Okla Stat. 178 ; You may need to contact an attorney...

    Generally, the policy gives the insurance company the right to investigate before paying the claim. Wagnon v. State Farm Fire and Casualty Co., 146 F.3d 764 (10th Cir.(Oklahoma)1998) allowed the insurance company to deny the claim after the insured was not honest about where he got the items he claimed were stolen. In Conti v. Republic Underwriters Ins. Co., 1989 OK 128, 782 P.2d 1357, the Oklahoma supreme court said that the insurance company did not act in bad faith in investigating the...

  8. Can i sue my neighbor for withholding information about who hit my car?

    1 lawyer answer

    You may be able to bring suit against your neighbors to force them to tell you under oath the name of the kid who hit your car. You may also be able to bring a claim against them directly because it was a visitor to their home that caused the damage, and they knowingly permit unsafe parking. This is a novel theory, however, and you may not be able to do more than get them to answer questions under oath about who hit your car. You may also be able to turn in the claim to your insurance company...

    Here is a link to the Oklahoma DHS website. http://www.okdhs.org/programsandservices/ocss/parent/docs/portal_sec3.htm It seems to link to the forms. But I suggest contacting DHS and advising them that your child is 19 and therefore no longer eligible for child support, and ask them to ensure you owe no further support obligations.

  10. What steps can I take to get my children back home?

    a court order showing you have custody should be sufficient to get the children back from Mom. But as is often the case with custody matters, please consider whether to get the authorities involved. If this continues you will need to get a lawyer and work it out through the courts.
