Payee notification has made its way back into the news. According to Virginia Lawyers Weekly, Virginia State Bar President Irving M. Blank told the agency's executive committee today that he expects statewide bar groups and the Supreme Court of Virginia to revisit the issue of payee notification soon.

Payee notification simply means that when an insurance company sends a check to a lawyer that is for a client (i.e. payment on the personal injury claim) the client gets notification of that transmittal.

Simple. Effective. Consumer friendly.

For some reasons, some trial lawyers don't payee notification think this is a good idea. I've made my position on this consumer friendly rule here and here.

I'd like any lawyer who can articulate a good reason why this rule should is a bad idea to comment here.

Thanks!
