Q: What if an injured person dies before claiming personal injury compensation?
A:This will depend on whether a person has died as a result of the sustained injuries or from causes that are not related to the injuries. In case an injured person dies, then that person’s close relatives may recover damages through a lawsuit. If an injured person with a personal injury claim dies from the causes other than the injuries – the claim will survive in most circumstances and it may be brought by the executor or personal representative of the deceased person.
