Kentucky Personal Injury Overview

Personal injury law involves civil claims in which an individual is injured through the negligence, recklessness or intentional misconduct of another person, a company, or property owner. A personal injury lawsuit may arise from physical or emotional injuries. Personal injury law compensates individuals injured as a result of another's negligence or intentional misconduct. Personal injury laws vary from state to state. If you believe you have a personal injury claim, you should contact a personal injury lawyer in Kentucky to evaluate your claim.

Kentucky follows a pure comparative negligence system.  With this system, a judge or jury assigns a percentage of fault to each responsible party and then apportions the damage award accordingly.  Using this system, an injured person may recover his or her damages even if the injured person was 99% at fault in causing the injury, with those damages reduced by his or her portion of the fault.  For example, in a car accident between Dave and Debbie where Debbie was found to be 99% responsible, and the jury found that Debbie suffered $10,000 in damages, that award would be reduced by Debbie’s 99% fault in causing the injury.  In the end, Dave would only have to pay 1% of Debbie’s damages, or $100 in this case.

A statute of limitations is a type of law that restricts the period of time that a person may initiate legal proceedings.  Time limits can vary depending on the type of case and the state where the particular cause of action occurred. To learn more about statutes of limitations, read our Statute of Limitations page. To see a state by state comparison chart for the personal injury statute of limitations for each state, read our Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Actions page.

Kentucky Statutes of Limitations

In Kentucky, the courts follow a pure several liability approach in entering judgment against multiple defendants.  Here, the amount for which each defendant is financially liable is proportionate to his or her share of the fault.  In other words, a defendant that caused the majority of the damages will be responsible for a majority of the financial judgment.
