What Damages Are Available in a Car Accident?

There are two main types of damages available after a car accident economic, and non-economic. Economic damages, also called special damages compensate for quantifiable losses after an accident such as missed days at work or medical bills.

Non-economic damages compensate for more abstract losses such as pain and suffering.

What Is the Statute of Limitations on Car Accidents in Kansas?

Every state does place a time limit on how long you have to file a claim before you lose your right to pursue compensation, also called the statute of limitations. In Kansas, the statute of limitations to file a car accident claim is two years from the date of the accident.

Is Kansas a No-Fault State for Car Accidents?

The state of Kansas is a "no-fault" state which means everyone is required to have personal injury protection (PIP) insurance coverage. This PIP coverage pays for whatever medical or out of pocket expenses are required after an accident regardless of who's fault the accident was.

You can pursue compensation from the negligent driver you caused the accident if your medical expenses exceed your PIP coverage or your injuries qualify as "serious."

Additionally, if you are eligible to file a personal injury claim against a driver you can pursue compensation for pain and suffering, compensation not available with PIP claims.

An injury is serious if it results in:

  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Permanent injury
  • Bone fracture

    “I Would Suggest That Anyone Needing Representation After Being Hurt in an Accident Use Their Firm.”
    I thought that I was taken care of as if I was a friend and not by someone I had never even met. Whenever I was feeling down and things just felt like they couldn't have been worse that day, I could always email Tom and he was always there to help me through whatever I was going through....and I had a lot of hard days emotionally for me. I am so blessed that they were representing me through all this. I feel like things turned out the best that they could of for me in total. I would suggest that anyone needing representation after being hurt in an accident use their firm. I thank GOD that they were the ones there for me after the accident.
