3 Questions Answered

Q. Community Service for "Drivers License Not On Person"?? Do I need this expunged? Is this a serious charge?
A: So, if your charges are indeed dismissed, you have the option to have the charge expunged 60 days after dismissal. You can pay a lawyer to do it, or you can try to do it yourself. You'll need to get a KSP certification first, that the charge is eligible for expungement. Her is a link for that: https://kycourts.gov/Expungement/Pages/process.aspx. It costs $40. Follow the instructions. As soon as you get the certification, you have I think 30 days to file a petition for expungement in the county where the charge is. Here is another link to help you out, so you can fill out the petition to have the charges expunged: http://www.cleanslatekentucky.com/ and http://www.cleanslatekentucky.com/instructions.html. This should get you started. And if you are not sure, contact a local lawyer in your area to assist you. Best of luck.
Q. Was passenger in full coverage vehicle covered by farm burea ins. Hit by coal truck ins. by another ins. Both KY vehi
A: It sounds like you have what is called a PIP application. The car you were traveling in is covered by Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance, which covers the first $10,000 of medical bills, and a small portion of any lost wages. If you have injuries, I would speak with a personal injury attorney, as it gets complicated. The coal truck's insurance carrier will handle any pain and suffering award, plus anything that exceeds the PIP coverage. First things first, get your PIP application in so you can have your doctor's visits and hospital visits covered. Then, I would strongly recommend speaking with a personal injury attorney. I hope this helps.
Q. My wife had a person run a stop sign and pull out in front of her causing my wife to hit her car. How does this all work
A: If the other party is at fault, then you must submit a claim to the other party's insurance carrier. The insurance company will then either fix your car or "total" it out and pay you the fair market value. If you have full coverage insurance, you can submit the claim to your insurance carrier, and have them deal with the repairs, less whatever your deductible is. If you have injuries, or any passenger has injuries, you need to submit a claim to your insurance carrier for PIP/BRB (personal injury protection/basic reparation benefits) and your insurance will pay the first $10,000 of medical bills, and a portion of lost wages. This is where it starts to get complicated, and I would recommend speaking with a personal injury attorney to handle your claim. I hope this helps.
