Arizona Survival Claim
While wrongful death claims can be brought by the family members of someone who has been killed in an accident, Arizona also has a survival action statute, allowing the estate of the deceased person to bring a claim on behalf of that person (rather than family members).
The purpose of the survival statute is to preserve the claims of the injured party after his or her death. The survival action functions to benefit the decedent’s estate with the intent of preventing the wrongdoer’s liability from ceasing upon the injured person’s death. The survival action permits recovery for the wrong to the injured person and is confined to his personal loss.
Only certain damages are recoverable under this statute, such as financial costs incurred by the estate as well as compensation for loss of enjoyment of life.
Many attorneys do not bring a survival action. At Mueller Law Group, we are familiar with the survival action statute and regularly bring survivorship claims.
