When you lose a loved one because of someone else’s negligence.
When you lose a loved one because of someone else’s negligence, you may have a wrongful death claim.
A wrongful death claim is a lawsuit due to the death of a person caused by negligence or acts of misconduct by another, and under Kansas statutory law, the person who caused the death is responsible for their conduct, either through their negligence or through their intentional acts. They are legally responsible for the damages caused to the family of the person who died.
A wrongful death cause of action or claim is for the damages caused to the family, and all of this is governed by article 19 under chapter 60 of the Kansas Code. It’s all a matter of statute, and so in order to understand how these wrongful death claims actually operate, you have to go to the statute since it governs most of the rules pertaining to how such a claim is prosecuted.
