Summary as introduced:

Disclosure of insurance policy limits; homeowners or personal injury liability insurance; personal injury and wrongful death actions. Allows an injured person, the personal representative of a decedent, or an attorney representing either to request the disclosure of the liability limits of a homeowners insurance policy or personal injury liability insurance policy prior to filing a civil action for personal injuries or wrongful death from injuries sustained at the residence of another person. The party requesting this information shall provide the insurer with (i) the date the injury was sustained; (ii) the address of the residence at which the injury was sustained; (iii) the name of the owner of the residence; (iv) the claim number, if available; (v) for personal injury actions, the injured person's medical records, medical bills, and wage-loss documentation pertaining to the injury; and (vi) for wrongful death actions, (a) the decedent's death certificate; (b) the certificate of qualification of the personal representative of the decedent's estate; (c) the names and relationships of the statutory beneficiaries of the decedent; (d) medical bills, if any; and (e) a description of the source, amount, and payment history of the claimed income loss for each beneficiary. The bill provides that in personal injury actions, the insurer only has to disclose liability limits if the amount of the injured person's medical bills and wage losses equals or exceeds $12,500. The bill also provides that disclosure of a policy's limits shall not constitute an admission that the alleged injury is subject to the policy. This bill is a recommendation of the Boyd-Graves Conference.
