required auto insurance coverages in kentucky

Residents of the Bluegrass State are required to carry the following minimum liability coverage limits:

  • $25,000 bodily injury liability coverage per person
  • $50,000 bodily injury liability coverage per incident
  • $10,000 property damage liability coverage per incident

Since Kentucky is a no-fault state, you're also required to purchase your policy with at least $10,000 in Personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. This pays for post-accident medical expenses (and more) for drivers on your policy and any passengers, regardless of who caused the accident.

You do have the right to decline no-fault coverage. If you decide to go this route, your insurer will submit a form on your behalf with the Kentucky Department of Insurance.

How no-fault coverage works

Your policy's PIP coverage can help cover medical-related expenses (including lost wages) after an accident, regardless of fault.

Additionally, each driver on your policy has the right to accept or decline no-fault coverage, and you can choose the deductible you'd like to pay (between $0 and $1,000 per incident). The state-required minimum limit is $10,000, but you can add additional PIP to your policy if you prefer more coverage.

If you choose to have no-fault coverage on your policy, you're also choosing a limited right to sue the at-fault driver for medical expenses. You can still sue if medical expenses exceed $1,000, or if the accident resulted in death, permanent injury, or disfigurement.

If you and the other drivers on your policy decline PIP, you'll need to have Guest PIP coverage for any passengers. Guest PIP comes with a $0 deductible.

optional car insurance coverages

Adding some of these optional coverages gives you extra peace of mind and financial protection if you ever need to file a claim:

  • Comprehensive coverage
  • Collision coverage
  • Personal injury protection (PIP) coverage
  • Uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage
  • Underinsured motorist bodily injury coverage
  • Towing and labor coverage
  • Medical payments coverage
  • CarMatch Rental Coverage®
  • Customized parts and equipment coverage
  • Auto loan/lease coverage
  • Additional personal injury protection (offers higher limits than standard PIP)
  • Guest personal injury protection (a PIP option that covers only guests in your car)

uninsured drivers in kentucky

Eighteen percent of Kentucky drivers were uninsured in 2009 according to a 2011 report from the Insurance Research Council. That was higher than the national average of 13.8 percent.

Drivers convicted of driving uninsured face a fine of up to $1,000 and a possible 90 days in jail.

To protect yourself from uninsured drivers, consider adding uninsured motorist liability coverage to your policy.
