A: Depends. Generally, suit can be filed on an auto accident case in Kentucky within 2 years from the date of the accident or within 2 years of the last PIP payment, whichever is later. So, depending on the date of the last PIP payment to her for her injuries, she may or may not be able to bri g the action.
