New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has signed into law regulations requiring auto insurers to disclose policy limits upon request by an attorney under certain circumstances. The law went into effect immediately for all new accidents and will cover accidents that occurred prior to its signing in 60 days.

Under the new law, auto insurers who receive a request by a licensed attorney for disclosure of their policy limits under a private automobile insurance policy must provide written notice of the policy limits within 30 days from receipt of the request.
