What is the Statute of Limitations for Car Accident Cases in Northern Kentucky?

Posted on Tuesday, March 17th, 2015 at 4:26 pm    

Gavel and old clockMany people understand the importance of seeking an attorney after they have been involved in a car accident. One of the reasons for this is due to the fact that a licensed attorney will be able to tell a person exactly how much time they have to file or settle their accident related claim. This is known as the Statute of Limitations, and if a claim is not filed within the allowed time frame, then in most situations, it will not be heard by the Kentucky Courts.

2 Years From the Date of the Accident or No-Fault Medical Payment

The Statute of Limitations in Kentucky for car accident cases is two years from the date of the accident, or two years from the date the last no-fault medical payment (or no-fault PIP payment) was paid by your car insurance company. However, the maximum time allowed is four years from the date of the accident, regardless of the date of the last no-fault medical payment.

Statutes of Limitation Vary From State to State

Statute of Limitations can even vary depending on the type of accident a person was in or who the lawsuit is being brought against. In Kentucky, the Statute of Limitations is different for different types of claims. The Statute of Limitations for an auto defects or product liability claims is one year, as opposed to the Statute of Limitations for a contract, which can be up to 15 years (depending upon the type of contract).

When Does the Statue Begin to Run

There can also be a question as to when the statute begins to run. For example, the Statute of Limitations for filing a professional malpractice claim, including medical malpractice, must be commenced within one year of the date of the act or omission giving rise to the claimant’s injury. If the malpractice cannot reasonably be discovered within that time, the lawsuit may be filed at a later time not to exceed five years after the date of the act or omission giving rise to the injury.

If you were in a car accident but are afraid that your Statute of Limitations has already run or is about to expire, contact an attorney Northern Kentucky Personal Injury Attorney. Lawrence & Associates will be able to tell you with certainty whether or not you may still file a claim in Kentucky.

We work tirelessly to help our clients get compensation and deal with the medical, financial and emotional effects of serious accidents. We will supply as many details as possible while still respecting our clients need for privacy.

The Situation

Our client had severe crushing injuries after a collision between construction equipment. The client was hospitalized with no income, and no way to pay for multiple surgeries because the insurance company would not approve them. The client’s spouse and children were in danger of losing their home.

What We Did

Lawrence & Associates filed suit against the manufacturer of the equipment involved in the wreck due to defects in the machine that caused it to crush the client. We also took on the insurance company to show it was responsible for paying for all the medical treatment that had been denied. Finally, we contacted the creditors to stop the lawsuits they were threatening to file against our client.

The Result

Lawrence & Associates obtained a large recovery for our client to replace all lost income, pay for future medical care, and compensate our client for pain and suffering. Lawrence & Associates also forced the insurance company to pay for every single medical treatment they had wrongfully denied. Finally, we were able to save our client’s home from foreclosure.

We want to share with you the results of a case we oversaw in September of 2011. We will supply as many details as possible while still respecting our clients need for privacy.

The Situation

Our client was in a motor vehicle accident in November 2011. The other driver failed to yield the right of way and hit the left rear of of our client’s vehicle.

The Injury

A few days after the accident, our client developed numbness and tingling in his arm and severe jaw pain. He was 58 years old at the time of the accident and had been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Our client’s numbness was diagnosed as carpal tunnel syndrome, which his doctor thought came from clenching the steering wheel when the collision occurred. The doctor also said the jaw pain was related to the impact.

Our client initially came to Lawrence & Associates because he had no way to get the medical treatment he needed. Lawrence & Associates was able to get him the surgery his doctor recommended, which was fully paid for by the other driver’s insurance company.

The Result

Lawrence & Associates got our client a settlement that not only paid for the physical therapy medical bills, but also contained extra money to be used for the future surgery. The other driver’s carrier was forced to compensate our client without hiding behind frivolous defenses.
