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 $300,000 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.
