How is a survival action different from a Florida wrongful death claim?

When somebody’s injured in an accident in Florida and then they subsequently die from an unrelated matter, their beneficiaries or family members can bring what’s called a survival action, which is to compensate the estate and the family members for the pain and suffering their loved one suffered while they were alive. Whereas, a wrongful death claim arises when the person dies as a result of the initial injury related to the accident. In that situation the survivors or family members are compensated for their own loss due to their loved one.
