Who is Liable After an Accident in Kentucky?
When it comes to car accident liability, Kentucky follows a no-fault rule. This means after an accident the injury victim files a claim with their own insurance to cover damages as opposed to the negligent party’s insurance. As in all other no-fault states, Kentucky mandates drivers carry a special type of insurance called personal injury protection (PIP) insurance.
This coverage compensates you for expenses related to your injuries such as medical bills, future medical expenses and the inability to work. It is possible to file a personal injury claim after an accident if your case meets one or more certain requirements including,
- Your medical expenses exceed $1,000
- You suffer a permanent injury or disfigurement
- You suffer a bone fracture
Car Accidents With Uninsured Drivers
If you were injured in an accident with an uninsured driver, you may still have a case under the uninsured motorist provision of your Kentucky car insurance policy. At Sam Aguiar Injury Lawyers, we routinely handle these types of cases, and we’re ready to investigate the forms of coverage available to you after your car crash.
Likewise, you may have options if you were injured in a vehicle without insurance at the time of your accident. Contact our auto accident lawyers in Louisville today to learn more.
Passengers Can File Injury Claims Too
