What is wrongful death? What constitutes an example of wrongful death under Kansas state law? Who can file a wrongful death claim in Kansas and how?

It is impossible to cover every possible incident imaginable in which someone might have cause to file a claim for wrongful death within the state of Kansas, but the wrongful death lawyers at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. definitely have enough experience to give you an idea about some of the kinds of situations from which a wrongful death claim might arise.

We hope that you find the information useful and we also hope to be hearing from you about your particular circumstances soon.
