Kansas Car Insurance Regulations & Required Coverage

Kansas insurance laws have strict penalties for those who do not maintain financial responsibility. The most popular way of doing so is by purchasing a car insurance policy from an insurance agency licensed in the state. Specific rules and regulations can vary from state to state so its important to stay current on Kansas laws if you live in or will be driving through the state.

Kansas is a no fault state. Their insurance laws dictate that after an accident, each driver (and their respective insurer) involved in the accident is responsible for paying their own damages from the accident. This type of system usually makes claim processing quicker but limits legal rights of drivers and usually increases average premiums.

Required Coverage

All personal vehicles in Kansas require the following liability coverage requirements:

  • Bodily Injury
  • Property Damage

Additionally, Kansas requires the following:

  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Bodily Injury
  • Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Minimum Kansas Car Insurance Requirements
Bodily Injury Liability $25,000 / $50,000 Limit
Property Damage Liability $10,000 Limit
Uninsured/Underinsured Bodily Injury $25,000 / $50,000 Limit
Personal Injury Protection $45,000 Medical / $900 Work Loss

Additional insurance coverage can include:

  • Comprehensive and Collision Coverage

Comprehensive and collision are both optional, but highly recommended. Collision pays for damage to your vehicle when it is involved in any type of accident. Comprehensive will pay for damage to your vehicle from such incidents as flooding or tornadoes. It also pays for financial loss resulting from having your vehicle stolen. If your vehicle is listed on as one of the most stolen vehicles in Kansas, you should consider this coverage on that basis alone.
