Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations

If a medical professional’s careless actions have caused you harm, it is imperative that you take action quickly to stay in compliance with the state’s statute of limitations. A “statute of limitations” is a window of time in which a person is permitted to seek legal action. Medical malpractice claims in Kansas must be filed within two years of discovering an injury or illness caused by a medical error. Wrongful death claims related to medical malpractice are also subject to the same time limit.

With that being said, no claim can be filed more than four years after an alleged negligent action. If you do not file a claim before these time limits expire, the courts may refuse to hear your case and you will no longer be able to seek compensation.

How Much Compensation Can I Receive?

While measurable economic damages such as medical expenses and lost wages have no limit, non-economic damages related to a person’s pain and suffering are capped at $250,000 per plaintiff. In particularly egregious cases of negligence, a judge may award punitive damages aimed to punish the defendants totaling up to $5,000,000.

It is important to note, however, that damages will vary on a case-by-case basis depending on the severity of a person’s injuries and the facts surrounding their case. To determine the exact amount of your eligible compensation, it is vital that you consult with our firm.
