Question: I have heard of a "survival action," what is that?
Injuries from accidents occur in many different settings. Sometimes the injuries arise from an automobile or motorcycle accident, other times they may occur as the result of a dangerous condition on another person's property or perhaps from the use of a product which malfunctions or is improperly designed. In the worst of circumstances, injuries can result in the wrongful death of a person leaving behind surviving family members to deal with the emotional and financial losses caused by the wrongful death.

Occasionally, the injured person initially survives the trauma of the accident, living for days, weeks or even months after the accident before dying. The remaining family members also have a right to bring a claim on behalf of the estate of the person to recover the damages the deceased's family member suffered before death.
