Bagley v. Bagley, 2016 UT 48 (Oct. 26, 2016)

Oct 26, 2016

An individual, acting as personal representative and sole heir of her deceased husband, brought an action against herself for negligently causing her husband’s death.  The Utah Supreme Court held that the wrongful death and survival action statutes unambiguously allow a person acting in the legal capacity of an heir or personal representative to sue him or herself in an individual capacity for negligently causing a decedent’s death or injury.
