                                   DIVISION   II. SURETYSHIP

                             CHAPTER 5. SURETY AND CREDITOR

  § 141. Subrogation

  Kan.App.2017.  Subsec. (a) quot. in sup. After employee who was injured in a workplace accident
  obtained a jury award for medical malpractice against treating physician, employer sought a lien against
  the award for payments it had made for employee's disability benefits and medical expenses, as well as
  a credit against any future medical expenses it might have to pay. The trial court denied in part
  employer's request. This court affirmed, holding that employer was not entitled to a credit against future
  medical expenses, because employee did not request and was not awarded future medical expenses in
  the underlying medical-malpractice suit. The court cited Restatement of Security § 141 in support of its
  conclusion that traditional subrogation concepts would not give employer any subrogation recovery for
  future medical expenses, because physician did not pay employee any sum for future medical expenses,
  and thus, employer's payment of future medical expenses could not contribute to physician's satisfaction
  of his obligation to employee. Henson v. Davis, 402 P.3d 1161, 1167.
