Wrongful Death Attorney Serving the Kansas City Metropolitan Area

If a loved one has been killed by the negligence of another, the spouse and/or next of kin may be able to recover damages. The damages sought through a wrongful death claim are those damages and losses resulting from the wrongful death of their loved one. In most wrongful death actions, a lawsuit is initiated through the personal representative of the decedent who is appointed by the probate court. Therefore, it is important to hire a competent and qualified attorney to preserve evidence, locate witnesses and to conduct a thorough investigation of the wrongful death claim so that the claim is not compromised due to loss of evidence and/or passage of time.

Most importantly, in many jurisdictions, wrongful death cases have a statute of limitations of only two years from the time of the decedent’s death. Failure to file a timely lawsuit will result in the loss of the family’s legal rights. In certain instances, wrongful death actions based on medical negligence/ malpractice may possibly be extended beyond the two years.
