Survivorship

Survivorship is a certain type of lawsuit brought against a negligent party that bears a great deal of similarity to a wrongful death lawsuit. Unlike a wrongful death suit, which must be filed by a victim’s family on behalf of the deceased, a survivorship lawsuit can be brought during a victim’s lifetime, in anticipation of death.

In many catastrophic personal injury cases, it is clear that the victim will eventually die from their injuries, and the process is filled with pain and suffering. A survivorship lawsuit allows for medical expenses, emotional suffering, and other damages that occurred while the victim was alive to be recovered, even in the event of that person’s death.

Typically, both survivorship lawsuits and wrongful death suits will be brought at the same time in order to achieve the maximum amount of compensation possible. However, the laws surrounding wrongful death, survivorship, and estates can be extremely complicated.

If you or a loved one has been victimized by negligence, you should immediately contact an effective and experienced Cincinnati personal injury lawyer who can guide you through the legal process, fighting to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation that you may be owed under the law and not letting any bureaucratic red tape get in the way of what you deserve.
