Wrongful Death

Accidents are one of the most abrupt and painful ways to experience the loss of a loved one. If your family member, relative, or unborn child has died as the result of another person's negligence, inattention or carelessness, you may be able to recover compensation through a wrongful death claim against the responsible parties.

We will help you seek justice.
Wrongful death claims can take many forms. Wrongful death cases could include:

To recover compensation, it must be shown in court that a person or company was responsible or at fault for causing the death.

Damages in wrongful death claims are generally limited to the monetary losses suffered by the family of the deceased and can include:

  • Any monetary support or income the deceased provided to the household
  • The value of the comfort, assistance, advice, protection, or companionship of the deceased
  • The value of the contribution the deceased would have made to society

The State of Kansas does allow damages to be awarded for grief, sorrow, pain or suffering of the family, but that amount is capped by Kansas law.

Wrongful death claims can be complex.
Unlike a personal injury claim, all wrongful death claims are brought to the court by a family member, an heir at law.

All wrongful death claims in Kansas must be brought to the court within a certain amount of time of the individual's death. That is why you should immediately consult with an attorney.

What You Should Do
Wrongful death laws are complex and claims are often difficult to prove. We believe that you should be compensated for the loss of your loved one. Contact us immediately to discuss your case. We have the experience in this area that will bring you the results you deserve.
