Who Is Liable After an Accident?

Every state has different laws regarding who is responsible for damages after a car accident. Kansas is a no-fault insurance state. This means that the insurance company of each individual party involved in a car accident will be responsible for paying for your expenses, regardless of who was at fault for the accident.

The insurance coverage that covers the cost of personal injury expense is called “Personal Injury Protection” or PIP and is mandatory for drivers in the state of Kansas. PIP coverage only covers financial losses you suffer as a result of your injury, such as medical expenses or lost income due to the inability to work. Since PIP coverage only covers financial losses, injury victims filing a PIP claim are not eligible to recover compensate for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. In order to recover such damages, a personal injury claim must be filed.

An injury victim is only eligible to file a personal injury claim if they meet certain criteria laid out by the state of Kansas. This criterion includes:

  • Suffering a permanent disfigurement
  • Suffering a permanent injury
  • Suffering a permanent loss of a body function
  • Incurring a fracture of a weight-bearing bone
  • Incurring a compound, comminuted, compressed, or a displaced fracture of any bone

When you work with Roger Fincher Attorney at Law, we will look into all areas of the accident and determine who is liable for your injuries and other losses. In most cases, driver error is the main cause of an accident, but other factors need to be considered, too. Were there potholes in the road? Did a vehicle part fail to operate correctly? Determining how the accident was caused can help make significant strides in determining liability.

Can I File A Car Accident Claim After Insurance Pays?

Most insurance settlements require an agreement that the amount of compensation in the settlement will be the only compensation given out to the injury victim, so once you sign it’s usually difficult to recover any further compensation. If you have already signed an agreement, call Roger Fincher Attorney at Law today to learn what options you may have and how our firm can help you.
