Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

Is the statute of limitations for Kansas City personal injury claims different for children than it is for adults?

Yes. In Missouri, the statute of limitation for injury claims for children begins on their 22nd birthday. In most cases, they then have five years to file a claim. An exception is medical malpractice. Children under 18 must file their claim by their 20th birthday.
 
In Kansas, claims may be filed until one year after the victim’s 18th birthday, but never more than 8 years after the injury occurred.
 
However, it is best not to delay filing a child injury claim. By filing a claim as soon as possible, you ensure that medical records and other evidence to support your case are still available.
