From what I understand, the funds collected in a wrongful death case do not follow the will. So, say the deseased left the next of kin nothing in their will .....this would not matter becasue the wrongful death does not follow the will.....correct? And they would still be able to collect recoveries from the wrongful death case.
How does the survival action play into all this. I don't fully understand it. From what I have researched the survival action does follow the will but the survial action is part of the wrongful death (which doesnt follow the will) ....so how in the world does that work?
Is it possible for the next of kin to walk away with nothing from a wrongful death settlement if the will stated nothing goes to the children?
