Lawsuits Against the Deceased in Utah

According to Utah personal injury laws, even though the at-fault party died, their estate can still be sued for damages. Under these circumstances, any claim for damages will be brought against the estate of the deceased.

This law comes into play in cases where the at-fault driver, and conversely, the injured victim. die as a result of the accident. A victim’s claim for financial recovery is valid even if one of both parties died.
