Explanation:
a wrongful death and survival action is based on the "wrongful death and survival statutes" which gives a surviving heir the right to sue a person who negligently caused the dead of that person.

What about, "demanda del sobreviviente por muerte causada por negligencia"?

Both, Alcaraz Varo and Thomas West III, translate "wrongful death" as "muerte causada por negligencia de otro"
