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

That raises two scenarios. One is if the person dies as a result of the negligent act in question. Say for example medical malpractice and they die later on, it becomes a wrongful death case and it’s brought by the family through a personal representative. The second scenario is that person dies from a cause completely different than what was the initial injury and that becomes what’s called a survival action and again the personal representative of the state will bring it on behalf of the person who died and that money would go to their estate.
