Survival actions for medical malpractice claims have many additional rules and requirements in order to carry them over to a wrongful death claim. Additional evidence of negligence may be required, and once the claim is settled, the settlement must be properly disbursed to the respective dependents and representatives.

In cases of medical malpractice that result in the death of the patient where a family member cannot bring about a survival action, a representative of the injured party's estate may continue the wrongful death claim. The Law Office of Jason R. Schultz, P.C. can help your family determine the next course of action when your loved one's medical malpractice claim turns into a survival action and wrongful death claim.
