I’ve been injured in a Kansas car wreck and told Kansas is a no-fault state. Can I recover from the driver who caused the accident? The answer is “yes”. “No-fault” is simply a statutory scheme that allows you, as the injured driver or passenger, to get certain medical and lost wage benefits paid from your own insurance company, while you wait for a recovery from the at-fault driver. Your medical bills are first paid by your car insurance company, then after you make a recovery from the negligent driver, your insurance company has a PIP lien which we resolve for you as part of our representation of you. Health care companies are also granted certain rights under both state and federal law which need to be dealt with. In any event, the at-fault driver who caused the wreck remains negligent and you can ultimately recover all your damages allowed under the law.
