Statute of Limitations in Kansas & Missouri
Statutes of limitations define the legal time limits for accident victims to file their personal injury claims. The clock (typically) starts the day of the accident and stops depending on which state you reside in. Our attorneys are licensed to practice in both Kansas and Missouri, which have the following limitations:
Kansas: 2 years
Missouri: 5 years
While these are the typical guidelines to follow, there are exceptions that could extend the window of time to submit your lawsuit. Because each personal injury case is uniquely complex, and the legislation surrounding injury statutes often changes, it’s important that you consult a knowledgeable attorney.

Obtain Trusted Legal Counsel
For you to succeed in recovering your losses, we will need to prove that the at-fault party was negligent or acted recklessly. While there's no guaranteed outcome, we diligently strive to prove negligence. To do so, our personal injury lawyers will collect and organize evidence to support your injury claim. Pieces of evidence can include a number of items, like photos or videos of the accident, eyewitness statements, medical reports, and accident or police reports.
We can use all this — along with any testimonies from medical or other experts, as needed — to demonstrate who was responsible for the accident that led to your injuries. From there, we present the best case possible so that we can fight for a fair settlement.
