Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents In Kentucky

Every year, hundreds of people lose their lives in road traffic collisions in Kentucky. Thousands more suffer severe injuries. A car accident can leave you in physical pain and coping with psychological trauma. You may be unable to earn an income for some time.

Personal injury claims can help with this, but the law in Kentucky is nuanced. Here are answers to some of the most common questions we hear about Kentucky traffic accidents to start you on the right foot.

Is Kentucky a no-fault state for car accidents?

Kentucky is unique from most states in that it is a “choice no-fault” state. What this means is that drivers have the choice of whether to claim using no-fault laws or at-fault laws. If a driver opts out of the no-fault system, they can pursue the at-fault driver for damages.

Who pays your medical bills after a Kentucky car accident?

If you pursue a claim against an at-fault driver, then the responsibility for your medical bills will probably lie with their insurer. If the insurer of the at-fault party does not cover all of your expenses, then you can take the at-fault driver to court for the extra costs.

If you do not pursue an at-fault claim, then paying for your medical bills may look slightly different. You may opt to utilize personal injury protection (PIP) coverage.

How does PIP coverage work in Kentucky?

Kentucky is considered a “no-fault” state in that drivers are expected to turn to their own insurance first, regardless of who is responsible for a wreck, unless they opt out of personal injury protection (PIP) insurance in writing. Only once the PIP insurance is exhausted can you pursue a claim against the other driver. Since the minimum PIP coverage is only $10,000 (which is what most people carry), that is likely to happen very rapidly.
