is there a stature of limitation on a civil suite for a car accedint
Absolutely. Kansas and all other states require that actions be brought within a fixed period of time established by law. For wrongful death it is two years, although in some circumstances the duration can be effectively shortened (as if the defendant is a municipality and notice of claim is required within a fix time period) or extended (as if the defendant is out of state and can not be found, or is a minor). BUT ALWAYS ASK A KANSAS LAWYER AS THEY WILL USUALLY HANDLE AUTO ACCIDENT CASES ON A CONTINGENCY FEE BASIS - I AM NOT A KANSAS LAWYER.
60-513. Actions limited to two years. (a) The following actions shall be brought within two years:
(4) An action for injury to the rights of another, not arising on contract, and not herein enumerated.
(5) An action for wrongful death.
Kansas also limits the amount of recovery for non-economic loss: In any personal injury action, the total amount recoverable by each party from all defendants for all claims for non-economic loss shall not exceed a sum total of $250,000. 60-19a02.
