In serious automobile accidents like this, it's important that the injured persons obtain legal counsel quickly and preserve the evidence from the crash and reserve insurance coverage payments until such time that the full extent of the expenses can be determined. While no one intends for an accident like this to happen, legally persons are still responsible for driving negligence that injures others. As such injured persons need to protect their rights of recovery and compensation for their injuries, medical bills, out of pocket expenses, lost wages, and suffering. These are referred to as Kentucky legal damages (Link to further explanation of legal damages that injured persons are entitled to under the law).
