Compensation (also known as damages) for personal injury falls under two broad categories: economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are a form of compensation for measurable financial losses stemming from your injury, encompassing past and future medical expenses, income loss, and additional incurred costs.
Non-economic damages refer to compensation for losses that can’t be quantified such as for ‘’pain and suffering’’ and emotional damage. Because this damage can’t be quantified, Kansas in Kansas Statutes section 60-19a02 placed a statutory limit on the amount that can be awarded for it. The award is limited to:
According to Section 60 513 of the Kansas Statutes individuals have a two year window from the date of the accident to initiate an injury claim. It’s important to note that completing the case within this timeframe is not necessary. It is essential to begin legal proceedings within two years of the accident. Failing to file within this period usually leads to forfeiting the right to pursue action as courts are likely to reject the claim.
