Yes, you can. Kansas is unique in its approach to car accident compensation. It is a "no fault" state. That means that you first file a claim with your personal insurance company. The initial claim is then processed through "personal injury protection (PIP)" coverage. If your damages exceed your PIP coverage, then you are able to pursue a claim against the other party.
Comparative Fault, in Kansas, is then used to determine each person's negligence and total damages. What you are entitled to for the car crash will be reduced by the percentage you were at fault. If you are found to have contributed 51% or more to the accident you will be barred from receiving damages from the other party.
While this process may seem simple, receiving payment for damages and necessary medical care, is a difficult and complex process. Each accident is unique and requires a skilled Kansas attorney.
