Helping Relatives Seek Compensation for The Wrongful Death of Their Loved One
Wrongful death cases can be complex by nature. Recovering the damages your family deserves after the unexpected passing of a loved one can bring peace of mind knowing your expenses are covered and the negligent party was brought to justice. According to Indiana law common types of damages that can be recovered include:
Funeral and burial expenses
Lost wages and benefits the deceased would have earned
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Kansas?
According to Kansas law a spouse, child, or parent, grandparent or sibling may file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a deceased loved one. A child of the deceased may only bring a claim if there is no surviving spouse. Likewise, a parent of the deceased may only file a claim if there is no surviving spouse or child.
In cases where there is no surviving spouse, child, or parent a representative of the deceased’s estate may file a wrongful death claim, recoverable by the deceased’s next of kin. In all cases, the statute of limitations to file a claim is the same, two years. This means you have two years from the date of your loved one’s death to file a claim or you may lose your opportunity to do so.
