Comparative Negligence in Owensboro, Kentucky Car Accidents

Kentucky follows the legal theory of pure comparative negligence. That means you can collect damages even if you share a percentage of fault for the accident. However, your award will be reduced by your liability. For example, if you are 25% at fault for an accident, you could collect 75% of your damages.

Statute of Limitations for Kentucky Car Accidents

You only have a certain amount of time to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. This deadline is called the statute of limitations. If you fail to file timely, the court could dismiss your case, and you would not be entitled to collect any money. For car accidents in Kentucky, you typically have two years from the accident date to file a claim.
