To pursue a claim in Kansas you must meet one of five "threshold" requirements: (1) fracture of a weight-bearing bone; (2) compound, comminuted or displaced fracture; (3) an injury requiring more than $2,000 in medical bills; (4) an injury resulting in permanent disability; or (5) scarring. You indicate that you have reached your PIP limit, and Kansas requires PIP limits to be at least $4,500, so you have met the threshold requirement for pursuing a claim.
You should probably hire an attorney to pursue this. Your case is likely worth more than $1,250. Additionally, you have to repay PIP from your settlement so an offer of $1,250 won't even repay your PIP.

You may be able to get the ticket dismissed by taking a copy of the vehicle's title, showing that you were not the owner, to the prosecutor. Explain that you did not own the vehicle and that you did not know that there was not insurance on it.See question

You need to hire an attorney to file suit against them. Kansas law has a great provision that if you have to file suit to recover money for property damage arising from a motor vehicle collision, then the defense has to pay your attorney's fees. Thus, it should not cost you anything to get a lawyer to pursue this. However, you should get on it right away as there is a time limit for pursuing the claim.See question

This is extortion. You should contact your insurance company to pay the claim. You should also contact the police and report that they are asking for money in exchange for not filing a police report.
Paying the deductible will not get you off the hook, as the insurance company which pays the claim for their insured can come after you for reimbursement (subrogation) of what they paid.See question

Any chance you were under 18 when the wreck occurred? Or that you have been "incapacitated" during the last two years? These are the only ways that I see around the two year statute of limitations set forth in KSA 60-513.See question

Kansas is a “no-fault” state. This means that you have a PIP (Personal Injury Protection) claim that will cover your initial medical bills, lost wages, essential services and rehab expenses. PIP pays these initial expenses regardless of who is at fault. Health insurance will not cover your medical expenses until PIP coverage is first applied. If you run into any difficulty with PIP coverage, a Kansas attorney will be able to answer your questions and help you.See question
My friend was driving my car when we were involved in a single car accident. My phone was dead so I tried to walk home and talk to my mom but I was arrested before I got home.
Passengers do not have a legal duty to stay at the scene of a car accident, so they cannot charge you for leaving the scene. However, it is possible that the police will question who was driving and might allege that you were the driver. That is probably why they arrested you -- they probably think that you were the driver and that you left the scene.See question
I was at a privately owned lake where I paid for access with family when I fell through a deck they had. I sustained injuries to my leg and had to go to the ER. I finally got in contact with the insurance company as I am now getting bills for the ...
This is what we call a "premises liability" claim. In this sort of a claim you can include damages for past and future medical expenses, past and future lost income, and past and future pain, suffering and disability. It would be necessary to prove negligence on the part of the owner, but that should be fairly easy given the advanced decay which must have been present to cause you to fall through the deck.
Whether you will need a lawyer will depend on the extent of your injuries, medical bills, and other losses.
