Parental responsibility for teen driving negligence: a look at Kentucky law, P.2

Last time, we began looking at what Kentucky law has to say about parents’ liability when their children become involved in a motor vehicle accident. As we pointed out, Kentucky law allows parents to be held jointly and severally liable for damages caused by a teen driver’s negligence when they sign the paper’s for their driver’s license application or when they provide them with a motor vehicle to drive.

Looking at bad faith insurance law in Kentucky, P.1

When an individual becomes involved in an automobile accident, it is critical that he or she exchanges insurance information with the other drivers involved in the crash and follows up afterward to seek out the coverage to which he or she is entitled.

Punitive damages: when are they available in motor vehicle accident cases? P.2

Last time, we began looking at the topic of punitive damages and their availability in motor vehicle accident cases, specifically cases involving truck drivers who violate safety regulations.
