Workers' Compensation

Categorized In Workers' Compensation

The Kansas Workers' Compensation Act was amended May 15, 2011. These changes have not been kind to workers. In order to have a valid claim, the work related accident must be the prevailing factor in causing your injury. In determining what constitutes the “prevailing factor”, in each case the administrative law judge will consider all relevant evidence. An injury is not compensable solely because it aggravates, accelerates, or exacerbates a pre-existing condition or renders a pre-existing condition symptomatic. There are additional changes in the new act including the manner notice is provided and calculation of work disability benefits.

For those uninsured individuals, the Legislature has created the Kansas Automobile Assigned Claims Plan (KAACP) as required by K.S.A. 40-3116. The purpose of this plan is to provide personal injury protection benefits for those individuals who are injured in an automobile accident who do not have any PIP benefits available to them. If an individual owns a motor vehicle that is not insured, the person is not eligible for coverage under the plan. The benefits provided by the plan are set out in K.S.A. 40-3103 and include disability benefits, and survivor’s benefits. If you have any questions regarding the plan, you can visit their website www.kaacp.org or call (785) 273-6300.
