Kansas Governor Signs 2 Auto-Insurance-Related Bills

Last Week, Governor Sam Brownback of Kansas signed two pieces of legislation into law.

The first law is referred to as “no pay, no play,” and is meant to limit the recovery rights of uninsured motorists. Basically, this means that uninsured drivers will not be able to seek compensation for pain and suffering after traffic accidents, though they may still sue for actual hospital expenses or damaged property.

This law only applies to those uninsured drivers who have been without auto insurance coverage for at least forty-five days, and did not have continuous coverage during the year immediately preceding the forty-five day period.

Another law makes bans cities in Kansas from imposing “crash taxes,” or fees for emergency responses to accidents, on drivers or their auto insurance companies.
