A: The answer depends first on whether or not your case was filed in court. If it was, there should be a scheduling order that provides a deadline for expert disclosures. If you have not filed in court, and have only notified the opposing insurance company of a claim, you need to be aware of the statute of limitations date applicable to your case. If you have not settled with the insurance company before that date passes, you could be barred from ever bringing the case.

A: An insurance company might be hesitant or unlikely to share expert reports with you. If a lawsuit has been filed, however, discovery requests can be directed to expert materials and there are certain mandatory disclosures regarding experts. If the latter scenario applies to you and you are involved in litigation, it might be a good idea to consult with an experienced litigation attorney.
