What if a person dies before bringing a personal injury lawsuit?

If the person dies as a result of injures due to an accident, then the person’s heirs may file a wrongful death lawsuit. Even if a person with a personal injury claim dies from causes unrelated to the accident, the person’s executor of the estate may file the personal injury claim because it still survives.
