DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL

Rights of consumers of legal services. Prohibits an attorney from communicating with a claimant concerning a legal action involving wrongful death or personal injury: (1) for at least 45 days after the wrongful death or personal injury occurs; or (2) until the claimant contacts the attorney; whichever occurs first. Requires an attorney retained by a claimant on a contingent fee basis to bring an action concerning wrongful death, personal injury, or damage to or loss of property to provide the claimant with certain information: (1) before the action is brought; (2) while the action is pending; and (3) after the action is settled or adjudicated. Allows a claimant to request an objective review of a contingent fee by a state or local bar association or another attorney to determine if the fee is reasonable and fair.
