Kentucky Senate Bill 100
In January 2020 the Kentucky Senate began debate on Senate Bill 100. This bill reduces the amounts an injured person may obtain for damages caused by the negligence of others. The Kentucky Justice Association is mounting a defense of your rights by opposing this bill which would essentially reverse a decision from the Highest Courts in Kentucky. Some may portray the current status of the law as a windfall for the injured victim. However an injured person is, in my humble opinion and in the Court’s Opinions, deserving of this type of compensation. An insurance company should not be entitled to a reduction of what they should be required to pay as just and fair compensation. The proposed change in the law will unduly affect the rights of injured persons and should be defeated.
