A: You likely have a claim for bodily injuries against the driver. You can likely recover for medical bills (past and/or future), lost income/wages, and pain and suffering (past and/or future). Some of your medical bills may be covered by PIP (KY - No Fault Law).

Contact an attorney immediately who understands Kentucky law and the MVRA (No-Fault)
