Can an insurance company attempt to settle a claim based on an altered application when the insured did not know of the alteration?

No. An insurance company can violate the Kentucky Unfair Claims Settlement Practices Act if it attempts to settle a claim on the basis of an application that was altered without the notice, knowledge, or the consent of the insured.
