Kentucky is one of the 13 States that follow the Pure Comparative Negligence System in resolving personal injury suits.
Weaver & Associates: Powerful, Caring Help
Unlike the Modified Comparative Negligence System where you can only claim damages if you are only 49-50% responsible for your injuries, in a State that follows Pure Comparative Negligence System, you can claim damages regardless of your share of the blame. If you are 99% responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, you are not barred from receiving damages. However, the amount you will receive in compensation will be
apportioned according to your share of the fault. If you were award $10000 in damages but are determined to be 75% responsible, you will only receive $2500.
As with other States, the State of Kentucky gives plaintiffs 2 years to file personal injury suits. After the time limit expires, you will be banned from seeking legal remedies against the party at fault no matter how serious your injuries were. The State also allows claims against multiple defendants to ensure the plaintiff receives the damages due him. If one of the defendants is unable to pay his share of the damages, the court will assign the amount
to other defendants.
