Video Summary

  • The statute of limitations is a law that sets the deadline for filing a claim in court; if the deadline passes, the claim is extinguished, and the right to recovery is lost.
  • In Kansas, the statute of limitations for personal injury or wrongful death claims is two years, while in Missouri, it is slightly longer.
  • It is advised not to wait until the statute of limitations approaches, as delays could prevent making necessary changes to the case if new information emerges.
  • Seeking a free consultation with an attorney is recommended to understand the specific deadline and how it applies to individual cases.
