When Kansas Car Accident Laws are applied?

Kansas car accident laws are applied when you are in a car wreck accident that can disrupt your life until you handle the related repairs and any medical issues that might result from the accident. When another driver was at fault, you are entitled to damages from that driver’s insurance company to compensate you for the costs associated with the accident and your injuries.

Knowing when the other driver was at fault, however, can be difficult to determine without evidence and legal counsel. Your experienced car accident attorney from Pyle Law knows how the laws in Kansas relate to car accident claims, and we can help protect all of your rights under the law.

Below are some laws that might relate to your car accident claim. To discuss your specific situation, reach out today.

Kansas DUI Laws

All accidents caused by drunk driving are preventable, as the driver made the decision to get behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated, which is prohibited by law. This places not only their own life and safety at risk but the lives and safety of all others they encounter while driving intoxicated.

In Kansas, alcohol violations and DUI are taken very seriously, and even having an open container within the reach of the driver or passengers is a misdemeanor offense. It is illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a blood-alcohol level over .08, or when incapable of safely driving a motor vehicle due to intoxication.

The decision to get behind the wheel when unable to safely drive places the driver in violation of the law and a DUI conviction can help you prove they should be liable for any damages caused by the accident.

What Are The Car Insurance Requirements in Kansas?

In the state of Kansas, it is required that you carry auto insurance by the Kansas Insurance Department. In Kansas, the law mandates that every automobile policy sold in the state must offer minimum coverages for liability, personal injury protection or no-fault protection, and uninsured/underinsured insurance. If you have been in an accident, your attorney from Pyle Law will know how to apply the other driver’s coverage or your own coverage to your situation to seek the full settlement you deserve.

What Is Comparative Negligence in Kansas?

In Kansas, the legal concept of comparative negligence is in place, which means an injured party in an accident can only collect from the other party if they were less at fault than the other party. The application of this law will depend on the unique facts and circumstances of your case, with your attorney providing key assistance every step of the way to maximize your recovery.
