Consumer asks Indiana not to prohibit Legal Funding

Today a hearing will take place in the basement of the Indiana State Capitol.  The subject matter will be a bill to prohibit Indiana consumer’s access to legal funding, a product that allows them an alternative when faced with financial pressures and an uncooperative defendant insurance company.  This is a repeat of a bill that Indiana Representative Matt Lehman introduced last year that was promoted publicly by professional defendant insurance company State Farm and its Indiana-based trade association, NAMIC.

The voice of a user of this product, Zanetta Lockett of Indianapolis, was able to get heard today over the din of the insurance companies.  Read her words in the IndyStar at:
