When You Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

The statute of limitations to file a claim is two years from the date of death, it’s important to note that the date of your loved one’s death may be different from the date an accident or injury occurred.

The immediate surviving family members of someone who has passed away can pursue a claim if they believe that negligence was the cause of a preventable accident which took their loved one's life. According to Kansas law "any one of the heirs at law of the deceased" may file a wrongful death claim. Most commonly an heir is a:

  • Spouse
  • Child
  • Parent
  • Grandparent
  • Sibling

In these cases, the surviving family may be able to recover financial damages for funeral and final expenses, loss of companionship, loss of support, pain and suffering, and more. While no amount of money will bring your loved one back, our firm would like to help you find peace of mind to know your expenses will be taken care of.
