Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi! My name is Richard & I will be helping you today! It will take me a few minutes to type a response to your question. Thanks for your patience!
Good morning. Your death, which I pray does not occur any time soon, would not be the end of your lawsuit. Your cause of action will survive your death. The executor of your estate and your heirs will have the legal right to continue the pursuit of this cause of action after your death on behalf of your estate and heirs. Your cause of action is basically an "asset of your estate" should you die and as such, your executor and heirs have the right to pursue the collection of this asset.
Thank you so much for allowing me to help you with your question. I have done my best to provide information which fully addresses your question. If you have any follow up questions, please ask! If I have fully answered your question(s) to your satisfaction, I would appreciate you rating my service as Good or Excellent (hopefully Excellent). Otherwise, I receive no credit for assisting you today. I thank you in advance for taking the time to provide me a positive rating!
