Understanding Claims

Unfortunately, most legal professionals will find themselves responding to an allegation of malpractice at some point in their careers. These claims, with and without merit, require investigation and defense. We know merely thinking about a legal malpractice claim, much less being on the receiving end of one can be an unnerving experience. We’ve made the process of claims reporting as easy as possible.

The easiest way to initiate the claims or incident reporting process is to visit our portal. You may also call us 405-471-5380. You will be asked to complete a form and provide a written narrative that summarizes the nature of your representation and the circumstances of the allegations or incident. You may also be asked to meet with us or to provide a complete copy of the case file.

Report A Claim

Report a claim or potential claim to OAMIC as early as possible, so that we can make sure you’re covered, or even help you repair the incident before it becomes a claim.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Happens Next?

When a report is made to OAMIC, it is immediately reviewed to determine if the error can be corrected or the damage mitigated in any way. Many claims and incidents never become lawsuits. If they do, we will work closely with you and the defense attorney we choose to represent you. An experienced team of professionals, including our in-house claims staff and outside counsel, work side-by-side with our insured attorneys. Your defense attorney and our claims staff are available to answer questions whenever you need them. Our staff will keep you informed throughout your claim process.
