The role of motor vehicle insurance in Kentucky
Kentucky is a “choice no-fault” auto insurance state. This means that no matter who was at fault for your accident, you must turn to your own insurance company for compensation first. When purchasing car insurance, you do have the option of opting out of the no-fault system, but then you run the risk of someone else suing you after an accident. Our experienced personal injury lawyers are here to help you understand all of your options under your personal insurance policy in an effort to help get you the compensation you need.
If you’ve sustained a physical injury, compelling you to sue the at-fault party, you may find that the driver has insufficient insurance coverage. Kentucky law requires drivers to carry a minimum level of liability insurance as follows:
- $25,000 bodily injury per person per accident
- $50,000 bodily injury for all persons per accident
- $10,000 property damage liability
- $10,000 personal injury protection
This is hardly adequate for a serious injury that requires hospitalization. To make matters worse, insurance industry studies indicate that about 16 percent of drivers in Kentucky have no insurance at all. Dealing with an uninsured or underinsured driver can complicate your pursuit of justice, making it even more important to seek the help of a skilled and experienced auto accident attorney.
