A: A Kansas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for five weeks. As a GENERAL premise, what you describe is the extension of a statute of limitations of a case based on the doctrine of discovery when concealment or other forms of fraud are involved. Since your post remains open this long, you could consider reaching out to med mal attorneys to discuss more meaningfully, as statutes of limitations are governed by state law. Most attorneys in the field offer free initial consults. Good luck
