Kansas Law and Car Accident Victim CompensationBy Pyle Law, October 05 2020 5:12 pm
Many car accident victims have the right to hold negligent parties liable for their injuries and losses. Laws vary from state to state, so it is imperative to have the help of a car accident attorney who understands Kansas law.
When you get behind the wheel of your car, you take on the responsibility of driving safely, as well as the risk associated with the traffic all around you. The fact is that negligent drivers are out there, and they often cause very serious traffic accidents. If another motorist’s negligence leaves you injured in a car accident, consult with an experienced Kansas car accident attorney today.
The State of Kansas does things a bit differently than most other states when it comes to car accident insurance. Kansas’s no-fault car insurance approach requires all car insurance policies to include coverage that is known as personal injury protection (PIP). When a motorist is injured in a traffic accident – regardless of who is at fault – this PIP coverage is activated, and it pays for a specific portion of the injured party’s medical expenses and lost earnings. The motorist, therefore, doesn’t have to go about proving fault before obtaining compensation for his or her mounting medical bills and lost wages in the wake of an accident.
If you are injured by another motorist’s negligence in the State of Kansas, you can pursue coverage for your damages via the at-fault driver’s own car insurance policy, including the following categories of damage:
In order to recover on your pain and suffering (or other non-economic damages) in Kansas, your injuries will need to meet at least one of the following thresholds:
While the insurance company can put up considerable obstacles in its efforts not to cover your pain and suffering, the fact is that $2,000 in medical costs doesn’t go very far these days, and nearly any serious injury can qualify.
