Sorry to hear about your accident. You need a personal injury lawyer to send a demand to the insurance companies involved. In Kansas, you have a claim for pain and suffering after incurring $2,000 in medical bills. It is possible the insurance companies will split fault 50% / 50%, which would require you to negotiate with both insurance companies.
Any time you are hurt ina c ar accident that is not your fauly, it would be ise to seek assistance from a personal injury attorney!
Good luck to you!
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced attorney to be fully aware of your rights. Finally, please forgive any typographical errors in my note!
Sounds like you have a valid claim. If neither company will accept liability, I would initiate suit against both drivers. Let the insurance companies battle out the liability disputes.
Always speak with an attorney before speaking with any insurance company. Learn your rights. Good luck.

You have a few different claims arising from this collision. First, you have a PIP or "no fault" claim. This pays your initial medical bills and lost wages. Second, you have liability claims against the insurance companies for both the driver of the truck and the driver of the SUV. The liability claims include all damages which you have suffered as a result of the collision including, but not limited to, medical bills, lost wages, incidental expenses, and pain, suffering and disability.
You should contact a well-respected injury attorney to pursue this.
