Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered

Q. Can a pedestrian be at fault in any way if they are injured by a car?
A: Yes, Kentucky is a comparative fault state. A jury will decide the level of fault for each party. A person can be assinged 1-100% of the fault. For example, if the jury determines the pedestrian was at fault at all, they could be assigned a percentage of fault. For example, jury finds $100,000 in damages, but pedestrian 50% at fault, the pedestrian would receive $50,000
Q. I need help with the charge of promoting contraband in the 1st degree. I am scared to death, need advice
A: Normally most criminal statutes will require intent. You will need to speak with your public defender and advise of all facts. Appears intent will be difficult for the Commonwealth to prove.
Q. Is driving after smoking marijuana considered a DUI in Kentucky?
A: Yes, driving under the influence can be based on any substance that impairs a persons ability to drive
Q. Can you file chapter 7 on federal income taxes
A: Yes, there are very specific rules, but first and foremost, that you filed all returns timely and they were not fraudulent. You should contact a bankruptcy attorney to discuss your specific situation.
Q. If an employee was full time when work related incident happened and got workers comp but changes status from full time
A: It depends on whether the worker has returned to work and what workers compensation benefit being referred to. If you return to work, after receiving TTD benefits, and then are reduced in hours, you will probably not receive additional TTD benefits. Your medical and all other workers compensation benefits should continue
