So sorry about this tragedy. There may be more policies that are available to your son then the mother's policy. Contact local and qualified personal injury litigation counsel asap. Good luck.

View my website & give me a call for a FREE consultation if you are a California resident 877-427-2752 or you can email me at Michael@Kingofpersonalinjurylaw.com www.KingofPersonalInjuryLaw.com I am licensed in California only and my answers on Avvo assume California law. Answers provided by me are for general information only. They are not legal advice. Answers must not be relied upon. Legal advice must be based on the interplay between specific exact facts and the law. This forum does not allow for the discussion of that interplay. My answer to any specific question would likely be different if that interplay were explored during an attorney-client relationship. I provide legal advice during the course of an attorney-client relationship only. The exchange of information through this forum does not establish such a relationship. That relationship is established only by personal and direct consultation with me followed by the execution of a written attorney-client agreement signed by each of us. The communications on this website are not privileged or confidential and I assume no duty to anyone by my participation on Avvo or because I have answered or commented on a question. All legal proceedings involve deadlines and time limiting statutes. So that legal rights are not lost for failure to timely take appropriate action and because I do not provide legal advice in answer to any question, if you are an interested party you should promptly and personally consult with an attorney for legal advice.

Complicated question. Much more information is needed. You should seek legal advice as soon as possible. Generally speaking, based on the limited information provided, it would seem your son's avenues of recovery would be: 1) The liability insurance on the vehicle; 2) any other liability policy that may cover the driver (if he lived with his mother he may be an "insured" under any liability policy on any car she insured; 3) If there is no insurance on the vehicle or under any other applicable policy, then you would look to any UM coverage covering your son under your own auto policy(ies); 4) If the liability insurance is inadequate, you would look to any UIM coverage under your own auto policy(ies). Your son would also be entitled to Ky. no-fault benefits. There are specific statutes applicable to this process that would absolutely require legal representation. To answer your question, I would expect the mom's homeowners' insurance would have an exclusion for auto claims and thus provide no coverage. If you wish to discuss further I would be happy to speak with you, you can reach me on my cell phone which is (502) 558-0666. The call is free. Good luck.
The incident and associated insurance policies need to be investigated by a qualified attorney. Consult one ASAP to preserve your son's rights in this matter. Best of luck.

I am not sure why you did not mention any automobile insurance either by you son or the other driver. If you did or the other party did and liability can be proven, there should be funds available that need to be found. Uninsured motorist should also be looked at depending on available insurance. Please find a local area personal injury attorney to help you through this insurance process. Good luck.
