Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

In accordance with the Kansas wrongful death statute, heirs may file a claim for wrongful death if a family member has died as a result of the negligence of another. The deceased person’s spouse, children, grandparents, siblings, and other relatives may participate in the wrongful death lawsuit. Any heir who does not join as a party plaintiff in the original action but who claims to have been damaged by reason of the death is permitted to intervene. The statute of limitations prescribes the time limits for bringing a wrongful death claim. The statute of limitations for a wrongful death in Kansas expires two years after the date of death.

What damages are available in a Kansas wrongful death lawsuit?

While legal action cannot erase a tragic loss, it is possible to obtain financial compensation to assist with life after the death of a loved one. Through a wrongful death claim, the survivors may pursue compensation for the economic and noneconomic damages caused by the death. There is no limit of recovery of economic losses in a Kansas wrongful death lawsuit. Economic losses include, medical expenses, loss of financial contributions that the person would have made had he or she lived, the value of household services contributed by the person had he or she lived, and funeral expenses. Certain cases may also result in punitive damages which punish defendants for more egregious forms of misconduct.

Kansas wrongful death laws cap the compensation a family can receive for noneconomic losses. Noneconomic damages include emotional distress, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, companionship, guidance and counsel. The cap on pain and suffering losses in a wrongful death case is $250,000. The Kansas statute limiting noneconomic damages in wrongful death cases can be accessed here. Since there are limitations on noneconomic damages, it is important that you have a tenacious advocate committed to establishing the nature and extent of all economic losses connected with your claim.
