Bringing a Survival Action for a Loved One
In personal injury cases, the person who files the claim is the individual who is injured. When a person has suffered wrongful death, any legal action must be brought by the estate's personal representative. This is generally a close family member or a friend who was named in the will to administer the estate.
Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to recover damages such as:
- Medical expenses
- Loss of life's enjoyments
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering experienced before death
- Funeral and burial expenses
