Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

According to Kansas law, “any one of the heirs at law of the deceased” is eligible to file a wrongful death claim. While this can obviously include many different people, it is typically a family member who files a claim since damages won in a wrongful death case are usually distributed among surviving family members. While not limited to, the individual who most often files a claim is:

  • A surviving spouse
  • Any surviving children
  • Surviving parents or grandparents
  • Surviving siblings

Compensation in Wrongful Death Claims

While we cannot bring your loved one back, we can at least work to try to reduce the financial strain of your loss. Our firm operates on contingency fees, which means there is no cost for you if we cannot obtain a recovery in your case. We are committed to trying to resolve your case favorably in negotiation. Our firm has negotiated on behalf of hundreds of injury victims from all walks of life.

Through a claim, you may be able to take care of financial costs and impacts like:

  • Loss of income
  • Emotional hardship
  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral costs
  • Loss of consortium

How Long Do I Have to File a Wrongful Death Claim?

According to Kansas law the statute of limitations to file a wrongful death claim is two years from the date of the deceased’s passing. The statute of limitations is, in essence, a time limit of how long you have to file a claim. Once this two-year time limit is up you will no longer be able to file a claim. There are exceptions to this rule that can change the amount of time you have to file so it’s important to speak to an attorney about your case as soon as possible.
