Description

The bill requires an insurer that provides or may provide liability
insurance coverage to pay all or a portion of a pending or prospective
claim to provide to a claimant via mail, facsimile, or electronic delivery,
within 30 days after receiving a written request from the claimant, a
statement, made under oath, of a corporate officer setting forth the
following information with regard to each known policy of insurance,

including excess or umbrella insurance:
  • The name of the insurer;
  • The name of each insured party;
  • The limits of the liability coverage;
  • A statement of any policy or coverage defense that the
insurer reasonably believes is available to the insurer at the
time of making the statement; and
  • A copy of the policy.
An insured party, or the insured party's insurance agent, upon
written request of a claimant or a claimant's attorney, shall disclose to the
claimant or claimant's attorney the name and coverage of each known
insurer of the insured party and shall forward the request to all affected
insurers. An insurer that receives such a request shall supply the requested
information to the claimant or the claimant's attorney within 30 days of
the receipt of the request.
An insurer or an insured party that violates the disclosure
requirement is liable to the requesting claimant for damages in an amount
of $100 per day, beginning on and including the thirty-first day following
the claimant's written request. The penalty accrues until the insurer or an
insured party provides the information required. An insurer or insured
party who fails to make a required disclosure is also responsible for
attorney fees and costs incurred by a claimant in enforcing the penalty.
