When you lose someone unexpectedly and suspect another party is at fault for their death, it is a good idea to talk to a survival action lawyer as soon as possible.

A survival action claim allows the family of a deceased person to pursue compensation on behalf of their loved one’s estate. A survival action claim aims to ensure that the estate is fully compensated for the harm the deceased suffered, even if they are no longer alive, to pursue the claim themselves.

Filing a survival action claim can be a complex and emotional process. Understanding the first steps to take can help you get compensation on behalf of your deceased loved one and hold the negligent party responsible.
