What are Survival Statutes in a Wrongful Death Case?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

What are Survival Statutes in a Wrongful Death Case?Wrongful death cases are not only going to be heartbreaking for the surviving family members and heirs, they can become both expensive and complicated for those that attempt to take on one of these ordeals without the services of our Los Angeles wrongful death lawyer. For those that are wondering what type of damages can be recovered after a wrongful death, here is a look at the survival statutes that may become a distinct component of a victim’s case.


Many wrongful death cases are going to in fact begin as personal injury cases. These often come about due to automobile collisions or injuries that take place on another party’s property. If these injuries do result in the victim eventually dying, the surviving family or the estate of the victim may request a continuation of the civil case with what is known as a survival action.

Survival statutes vary by state, but California allows the estate of the victim to sue for damages relating to medical expenses and even funeral costs in some cases. These do differ from wrongful death cases though as the compensation is not going to include future earnings.

 If you have recently lost a loved one or are suffering from a life-threatening injury, the Law Offices of Hamdam and Associates is here to assist you. Our world-class personal injury attorney in Los Angeles has worked with countless victims to provide the time and energy necessary into creating an airtight case that is going to achieve compensation as quickly as possible.
