The Uniform Simultaneous Death Act is a law used to determine the inheritance when more than one death occurs at the same time. The act states that if two or more people died simultaneously due to an accident within a 120-hour survival period, with no will, their assets are to be passed to the relatives rather than from one estate to another. This act is used to avoid double administrative costs.
