Kansas requires all registered vehicles that operate on its highways be insured. It is somewhat confusing when we hear the word “no-fault” when describing insurance. This does not mean that no one was at fault but rather certain insurance benefits are paid regardless of fault or legal responsibility. Typically, the no fault provisions which must be contained in an insurance policy for a Kansas registered vehicle pays for medical benefits and lost wages for the owner or beneficiary of such policy regardless of fault. Simply put, the insured (policy holder) or other beneficiary will receive the so-called “no-fault” benefits even if the insured is at fault.
All Kansas liability policies come into play when considering fault or legal responsibility. This involves an analysis of the “rules of the road.” Kansas is a comparative fault state meaning specifically that the injured party must be less than 50% at fault in order to recover benefits against the at fault party’s liability policy. An analysis should be conducted by an experience personal injury attorney due to many accidents involving the assessment of fault to more than one person.
