Kentucky Plane Crash Litigation: A Case Of Policy Language Interpretation

 Monday, October 1, 2018

 Commonwealth Journal

The insurance agency holding the policy on the aircraft in which Scott T. Foster and three others were killed has filed an answer in federal court to allegations of a violation of the Kentucky Unfair Claims Settlement Practices Act. U.S. Specialty Insurance Company (USSIC), contends that their policy only allows for $100,000 per person injured/deceased, meaning the estates of all of the victims in the November 2017 crash are entitled to $100,000 per each victim. That includes Doug Whitaker, an attorney with Foster’s law firm and a former chaplain for the Somerset Police Department.
