Can an insurance company hold up a settlement on one claim to try and force a lower settlement on another claim?

No. An insurance company can violate the Kentucky Unfair Claims Settlement Practices Act by failing to promptly settle claims where liability has become reasonably clear under one part of the insurance policy in order to influence settlements under other parts of the insurance policy.
