Why Do I Need To Purchase Underinsured Insurance Coverage In Kentucky?

If you operate a motor vehicle in Kentucky, you are already familiar with the state’s minimum requirement for liability insurance coverage. Each state sets minimum liability insurance requirements for drivers within the state.  Liability insurance protects others in the event you cause a car accident.

For example, if you carry $50,000 in liability insurance coverage, your insurance company should pay the accident victim’s damages up to $50,000 if you are at fault for the accident.
