Kentucky mandates personal liability coverage of $25,000 per person and a $50,000 limit per accident, and minimum property damage liability coverage is only $10,000. An opt-in personal injury protection plan which provides no-fault benefits is available, and the mandatory minimum coverage for this no-fault choice is $10,000. Motorists can choose between the no-fault and tort system; under the no-fault system the driver’s own insurance pays for damages in exchange for giving up the right to sue up to the limits of coverage. Under the tort system the party judged responsible is liable for all damages. In either system, purchasing coverage with limits that are high enough to protect against loss of assets is highly recommended. Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage is also available in Kentucky and is recommended although not mandatory.
