Kentucky Supreme Court Addresses Legal Malpractice Statute of Limitation

The Kentucky Supreme Court recently held that in a “non-litigation legal malpractice claim” the one-year statute of limitations clock starts “when the claimant is reasonably certain that damages will indeed flow from the defendant’s negligent act.” This opinion overturns prior case law that created uncertainty and did not start the clock on non-litigation legal malpractice claims until the claimant knew the exact dollar amount of damages due to the malpractice. Read the full opinion here.

The LMICK Minute - Issue #34

To Our Policyholders:

We are privileged to have served you, Lawyers Mutual of Kentucky’s (“LMICK”) insureds and the lawyers of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, for another year. In anticipation of the upcoming Annual Meeting (more details below), this is my opportunity each year to tell you about the state of your Company and to reiterate how proud we are to work with you and for you. I decided, however, to take a bit of a different approach. You hear us talk about ourselves - what we do and how we do it - all the time. I thought it might be nice to hear about LMICK from others who know us and can tell you about the Company and how we try to do business in service to you.
