Q: How do you say this in English (US)? - I know just SOME words -
Is it correct to use in this sentence word SOME?

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? SOME IMPOTRANT IMFORMATION ON THE INSURANCE TOTAL LOSS DOCUMENT
A: Most likely your dad is one of the insured. The witness would be somebody not involved in the accident who can verify the identity of insured individuals who are signing the document - possibly a notary.

I will say this though, you typed the word 'bolocks'. I assume you mean blocks however when dealing with insurance companies you very well could have meant 'bollocks'. Sorry, I couldn't resist making the joke.

I can't really make recommendations on what should be signed since that's a legal issue your father should bring up with legal counsel.

Other questions about "Some"

Q: IT'S JUST SOME GUY I WORK WITH.
what does some here mean? is it like normal?
A: I am not sure I understand your question. Do you mean can you say this phrase ("It's just some guy I work with.") to a female co-worker? Yes, you can. "some guy" just means you don't know him well. (but "guy" here can only be a male. If you want to refer to a female you would say "some woman")
Q: SOME OTHER ACT OF means?

Thank you.
A: An “act of ____” is an action that shows an emotion. For example “an act of kindness,” “an act of hatred,” “an act of love.”

“Some other” refers to another thing like the thing you are talking about. The implication is that it can be any other thing, so they are just looking for any other “act of love.” They don’t need a specific “act of love,” they just need to find one.
Q: SOME COLLEGES DO NOT ALLOW FRESHMEN WHO LIVE ON CAMPUS TO HAVE CARS. OTHER COLLEGES ALLOW ALL STUDENTS WHO LIVE ON CAMPUS TO HAVE CARS. WHICH POLICY DO YOU THINK IS BETTER FOR FRESHMEN AND WHY? GIVE SPECIFIC DETAILS AND EXAMPLES IN YOUR ANWER.

I think school should allow students who live in their campus. In a case of our town, we have no train in our town. So we need cars for just going to school or going shopping and so on. So we can't go anywhere without cars. Of course, we have public bus services but it's too inconvenient. And also I think young men and women should travel. Just it's ok to travel around our town. But just I mean we have many opportunities outside of our school. We should join a event that's held in other towns to make friends or just see new things. And we can experience many things and get new opportunities. That's why I support the opinion that they should have cars. Does this sound natural?

Q: SOME PEOPLE PREFER TO LIVE IN A SMALL TOWN. OTHERS PREFER TO LIVE IN A BIG CITY. WHICH PLACE WOULD YOU PREFER TO LIVE IN? USE SPECIFIC REASONS AND DETAILS TO SUPPORT YOUR ANSWER.

I prefer to live in a small town. In a small town, there is a beautiful nature. I live in a small island called Okinawa in which there are some beautiful beach and nature. I'm so proud of that. And the air is much cleaner than one in a big city. And few people live in a small town so, their relationship is stronger and they are kind. Some people say small towns are inconvenient because of few facilities and little public services. But those make us friendly, communicate with others or helpful. And those also protect small towns from destroying the nature. And nature heals us. Therefore I want to live in a small town. Does this sound natural?

Q: SOME COLLEGES REQUIRE THAT STUDENTS DECLARE A MAJOR BEFORE THEY START THEIR FRESHMAN YEAR. OTHER COLLEGES ALLOW STUDENTS TO DECLARE THEIR MAJOR UP TO THE END OF THEIR FRESHMAN YEAR. WHICH POLICY DO YOU THINK IS BETTER FOR FRESHMAN AND WHY? INCLUDE DETAILS AND EXAMPLES IN YOUR ANSWER.

I think that school should allow students to declare their major at the end of their freshman year. Some people say that students should choose their major early because they can get more time to study about their major. But because of that, some people may make mistakes to choose their future.
In my school, we can take some classes which are not our major one like music, foreign languages, politics and so on in freshman year. So we can touch several studies. Then we can understand what study we like and what study we don't like. So we make less mistakes to declare our major. That's why I think the policy that student choose their major at the end of freshman year is better. Does this sound natural?
A: いいよ、と思いますけど
It would be a little more natural sounding if you say:
“more time to study their major”
“mistakes while choosing their future”
“some classes that aren’t apart of our major, like music, foreign languages, politics and so on, in freshman year; so we can touch on several studies”
“Then we can decide what studies we like and don’t like; so we make less mistakes when declaring our major”
“the policy that students”
