If you have actually filed a lawsuit (Summons and Complaint filed with the court and served upon the other party), as opposed to simply pursuing a liability claim with the at-fault driver's insurance company, then the liability policy limits are discoverable through the formal Discovery process and must be disclosed if properly asked for. On the other hand, if you have not yet filed a lawsuit then the adverse insurance company actually can not disclose their insured's policy limits to you without written authorization from their insured to do so.
