Understanding Car Accident Laws in Kansas

Kansas, like every other state, has unique laws and regulations regarding car accidents. These laws have profound implications for the victims of car accidents, which is why it's crucial for anyone embroiled in such a situation to understand these laws thoroughly.

As experienced car accident lawyers, Dolman Law Group deeply understands Kansas-specific laws and is committed to guiding victims through their complexities.

Overview of Kansas-specific Car Accident Laws

Kansas operates under a no-fault system when it comes to car accidents. This means that after an accident, a victim seeks compensation for injuries from their insurance company, regardless of who was at fault.

In some cases, however, Kansas auto accident victims who suffered severe injuries, including injuries that exceed the protection of their personal injury protection coverage, still have the right to pursue compensation through the other driver's insurance company. 

The no-fault laws can significantly affect how a victim recovers damages after a car accident. Under this system, you may have significant limits to what you can recover from an accident; for example, you may not have the right to recover compensation for pain and suffering when you file a claim through your car insurance company.

Understanding these nuances is critical to navigating your claim and ensuring you receive fair compensation for your damages. The experience of a seasoned car accident attorney can prove invaluable in navigating these complexities. 

Kansas Car Accidents: The Basics

More than 57,000 accidents occur across Kansas annually, involving over 90,000 vehicles and resulting in approximately 424 fatalities.  

Traffic accidents happen for a range of reasons. Single-vehicle accidents commonly occur throughout Kansas, accounting for more than 26,000 accidents annually.

Other common causes include:

  • Deer collisions, which represent more than 10,000 accidents across Kansas annually. These collisions occur most often in the fall but can happen at any time of the year. 
  • Speeding, which causes more than 4,400 accidents across Kansas each year. Many drivers speed to get to their destinations faster but may end up inadvertently causing a collision or worsening the impact of a collision. 
  • Snow and ice, which contributes to around 3,000 accidents in Kansas each year. 
  • Distracted driving, which contributes to around 18 percent of car accidents in Kansas. Kansas continues to remind its drivers about the dangers of distracted driving and prohibits cell phone use, but drivers continue to end up in devastating collisions due to distraction. 

An estimated 3,300 accidents across Kansas involve big trucks. Large-truck crashes can mean more severe damage to the passengers in smaller vehicles, as they may not have adequate protection. School bus accidents only occur around 200 times per year. 

The Rights of Car Accident Victims in Kansas

When you are the victim of a car accident in Kansas, you have certain rights under Kansas law. Understanding these entitlements is crucial to making informed decisions about your case and ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve. At Dolman Law Group, we have a duty to fight for you and explain your rights and how to best protect them.

As a car accident victim in Kansas, you have the right to seek compensation for the losses you suffered due to the accident. This includes compensation for medical expenses, lost earnings, and other out-of-pocket costs.

Under the no-fault system, you seek these damages from your insurance company. If you suffer severe injuries and your costs exceed the protection offered by your policy, you may have the right to seek additional compensation from the at-fault driver.

The Role of Dolman Law Group in Protecting Your Rights

What Are The Common Types of Car Accident Cases in Kansas?

Car accidents can occur under many circumstances, each requiring a unique approach when pursuing a claim. At Dolman Law Group, we have the experience and resources to handle many car accident scenarios. 

Our experience spans various car accidents, from minor rear-end collisions to severe multi-car pile-ups. We handle cases including but not limited to side-impact collisions, head-on collisions, rollover accidents, hit-and-run cases, and accidents involving uninsured or underinsured motorists. Each of these scenarios presents unique challenges and requires a tailored approach. 

Regardless of the type of accident, immediate legal representation can significantly affect your claim's success. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can start gathering evidence, advising you on dealing with insurance companies, and building your case. By acting swiftly, we can advise you as you progress through the process, preventing you from making errors that may lead to decreased compensation. 

Steps in Pursuing a Kansas Car Accident Case

Navigating the legal complexities of a car accident can feel overwhelming and stressful.

At the Dolman Law Group, we simplify this process for our clients. We follow a structured, systematic approach while handling car accident cases to ensure the best possible outcome for our clients.


Our process begins by thoroughly investigating the accident to gather all the necessary evidence. We collect witness statements, review any video evidence, and collect statements from both drivers. 

Filing of the Claim

We then file all requisite documents and claims with the insurance companies and other involved parties. We include relevant evidence and a breakdown of your damages to show the compensation you deserve.


Our team diligently negotiates with the insurance adjusters to secure the fairest compensation possible. We won't hesitate to take the case to court if negotiations don't yield a satisfactory result.

Our team cannot stress enough the importance of immediate legal representation after a car accident. Early involvement allows us to preserve crucial evidence, consult with expert witnesses, and counter any unfair tactics insurance companies use. Prompt action will enable us to build a robust case, help protect your rights, and work towards getting you the compensation you deserve.

Understanding Damages and Compensation in Kansas

A car accident can profoundly affect your life, potentially leading to severe injuries, emotional trauma, and financial burdens. At Dolman Law Group, we help victims fully grasp the variety and extent of damages they can claim in car accident cases.

Damages in car accident cases generally fall into the economic and non-economic categories. 

Economic Damages

Economic damages include quantifiable costs, such as medical bills, lost earnings, and property damage. 

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages prove less tangible and include pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. In some cases, the court may award punitive damages to punish particularly reckless behavior and deter future negligence.
