Protecting Accident Victims From Uninsured And Underinsured Drivers
In Kentucky, drivers are required to maintain liability insurance coverage. This coverage helps guarantee that, if you are involved in a vehicular accident, the other party will have sufficient insurance to address the damage and injuries you sustained in the crash.
Unfortunately, many accident victims discover that the at-fault driver either does not have insurance or does not have sufficient insurance to cover personal injuries. If you have experienced this unfortunate situation, please seek representation from a personal injury lawyer immediately.

What Is Personal Injury Protection Coverage?
Personal injury protection, or PIP, covers medical expenses and lost wages related to a motor vehicle accident. The standard coverage in Kentucky is $10,000. However, some drivers wisely seek additional coverage to supplement this number.
Conversely, some drivers decide to formally opt out of obtaining PIP through a form filed with the Kentucky Department of Insurance. In addition to declining coverage, some drivers allow their automobile insurance to expire, or they may be driving in Kentucky from another state that does not require minimum coverage.
