The Statute of Limitations in Kentucky car accident cases is two years from the date of the accident or two years from the date of the last no-fault medical payment not to exceed four years under most circumstances. It is important to contact a Kentucky automobile accident attorney to make sure you know what the statute of limitations is in your case so that you don't waive your right to be compensated for your injuries.
