Q: Someone called my mom saying my car was in an accident and if I didn't call she had to go to court.

1 Answer | Asked in Car Accidents and Libel & Slander for Kentucky on
Answered on Jan 2, 2018

Sounds like a phishing expedition. If it's your car why would they call her? Did they ask her for her or your social security number or date of birth? Did they ask for her maiden name?

I'd call the number on an evening or weekend from a cell phone, the message may identify the company.

If you get an individual, just listen, ask questions, give no information--who are they,where are they--if you hear phones in the background it means a "boilder room" --a bunch of people making...

Q: Injured riding with dad, other at fault driver had no insurance. Do I have claim under dad’s uninsured coverage

1 Answer | Asked in Personal Injury for Kentucky on
Answered on Dec 5, 2017

It would appear that you may be covered under your dad's uninsured motorist ("UM") bodily injury coverage - assuming he had UM coverage on his policy at the time of the crash. It will depend on the policy language which may contain certain exclusions. You will also likely be covered for PIP benefits under his policy under Kentucky's Motor Vehicle Reparations Act ("No-fault / PIP"), but there are exceptions. Speak with an attorney before giving any statements to the insurance company.

Q: Some one hit my parked car today.i have insurance as do they. I got a police report what do i do next?

1 Answer | Asked in Car Accidents for Kentucky on
Answered on Dec 2, 2017

File the claim with your own insurance company. Assuming you have the available coverages, your insurance company can repair your car and provide you with a rental so you can get to work and take your children to school. Provide your insurance company with a copy of the police report and they will pursue the other parties to get back the money they pay out on your claim and also any deductible you may be responsible. This appears to be the quickest way to accomplish your goals.

Contingency fees are very common in personal injury cases, and can range anywhere from 25%-40% of total funds collected depending on a variety of factors. A higher percentage may be justified for a more complex case or a case where fault is questionable.

Q: Is it better to file bankruptcy or let a trailer go back

1 Answer | Asked in Bankruptcy for Kentucky on
Answered on Oct 24, 2017

Trailers are the very worst way to purchase a home. It is almost always better to let the trailer go back and to purchase a home which increases in value over time. A Trailer always depreciates in value. If it is all you can afford I understand it. But the payment is rent and eventually it falls apart.
