Filing a Police Report

Kentucky law requires you to file a form with the state police within 10 days of an accident that causes injury, death or property damage over $500. If you fail to do so you could be fined and your driver’s license could be suspended Your report can be used as evidence to support your personal injury claim.

Settling vs. Suing

It is usually a good idea to try to settle your claim first before suing the insurance company or the responsible party. In fact, over 90 percent of car accident claims are settled this way. In some cases, however, the defendant or the insurance company is stubborn and must be taken to court.
