The accident happened around 7:10 a.m. while a student was trying to board a school bus. Reports indicate that Scottie Ingle, age 30, was driving his vehicle southbound on KY-519 when he tried to pass a school bus and struck a student who was attempting to board the bus. The child was airlifted to University of Kentucky Hospital to be treated for his injuries.
The parents of this child have civil legal recourse under Kentucky law for the injuries their child has suffered. A parent, on behalf of their child, can seek to legally recovery any medical bills related to this accident (which will likely be substantial considering that the child had to be airlifted to the hospital), pain and suffering damages/compensation for the child, and compensation for any future medical bills or permanent impairment the child may suffer. Additionally, the parents also may have legal compensation owed them as relates to their child’s injuries and accident.
This is a situation where complex avenues of recovery will likely be involved and multiple insurance policies will be sought to insure the child can recovery every penny of compensation the child is entitled to.
