What Is PIP In Kentucky?
In Kentucky, all insured motorists are covered to a certain extent due to personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. Even though PIP can make sure that injury victims can receive treatment right away after an accident, it is important to realize that it is limited and that serious injuries can often require tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands of dollars beyond what PIP will cover.
At Taliaferro, Carran, & Hampton, PLLC, we can help you make sure you receive the PIP coverage that is part of your no-fault benefits and make sure that all other sources of compensation are actively pursued. Our team can handle all of the legal details so you can focus on getting better after your accident.
Kentucky Is A “No-Fault” State
This means that insured motorists carry policies that will pay for part of the costs associated with accident-related injuries, regardless of who is at fault. This coverage is known as personal injury protection (PIP). PIP covers up to $10,000 for damages such as bodily injuries, lost wages and, in fatal cases, death and burial expenses. PIP coverage is standard on all Kentucky car insurance policies, but most motorcycle policies do not include PIP coverage.
In addition to your PIP coverage, we will pursue all compensation available from at-fault parties such as negligent drivers, parts manufacturers and trucking companies. While PIP coverage can be crucial in the early stages, personal injury claims are often where injury victims receive the compensation they need to put their lives back together.
