Time Limits On Injury Claims In Kansas
Personal injury claims in Kansas are subject to a statute of limitations, or a window of time in which a person is permitted to pursue legal action. With the exception of medical malpractice and product liability claims, all injury claims must be filed within one year of a person’s injury to be heard by the courts.
Failing to file a claim within the allotted timeframe can cause a person to lose their right to seek compensation. Since gathering evidence and filing the necessary documents can potentially take months, it is vital that you contact our office as soon as possible to get started towards filing a claim.
