Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

What is a statute of limitations?

There is a timeframe in which a lawsuit has to be filed in Kansas City. This is true in both Kansas and Missouri. Each state can make its own ruling. One of the common types of accidents that have a statute of limitations is a wrongful death claim. Each state makes laws regarding who can file these claims. For example, a surviving spouse that was legally married to the victim at the time of death can file this sort of claim. There are specific rules for minors and adults, general accidents, professional negligence, and a wide array of other common claim types.
