Terms Used In Kansas Statutes 75-6118

  • Settlement: Parties to a lawsuit resolve their difference without having a trial. Settlements often involve the payment of compensation by one party in satisfaction of the other party's claims.
  • Tort: A civil wrong or breach of a duty to another person, as outlined by law. A very common tort is negligent operation of a motor vehicle that results in property damage and personal injury in an automobile accident.

Nothing in the Kansas tort claims act shall be construed to preclude settlement and payment of a claim pursuant to K.S.A. 46-920 or 46-922, and amendments thereto.
