• Fatal Accident Act (13 of 1855) - Makes possible a survival of cause of action for the legal representatives who pursue for damages for persons who are responsible for the death - All that has to be seen is whether the death was resultant to the injury caused to the person - If it was, there is no escape from the liability and it is no answer for the defendant to say that there was also a case against claimant and his party and the criminal complaint had also been lodged against them.  (182) PLR
