Can you explain how no-fault insurance works?

A recent Google visitor to our firm asked this common question from Kentucky drivers who are involved in a car accident. Kentucky law requires drivers to purchase and maintain car insurance. Kentucky is a "no-fault" state. No-fault takes the form of "personal injury protection" (PIP) benefits, which pay up to $10,000 for medical bills, lost wages and similar "out-of-pocket" costs resulting from the policyholder's car accident injuries. These benefits are referred to as "no-fault" as they are paid regardless of who caused the accident.p_price_auto_policy_494087582.jpg
