Latest Cases

It is our purpose to report recent legal developments in Kentucky law as it relates to personal injury and insurance law, and to provide some commentary on the developments. In using the site, you should keep in mind a few things. First, any analysis is general and not a substitute for independent analysis in the context of a particular fact situation. Second, any commentary is the opinion of the author. Third, non-final opinions are not to be cited as authority except as permitted by C.R. 76.28(4)(c). However, this site should assist you in maintaining currency in Kentucky law whether you are an attorney or claims professional, and we hope you find it useful and helpful. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions feel free to call (859) 475-1471.
