Uniform Simultaneous Death Act.

The Uniform Simultaneous Death Act is a law that governs how property is distributed when two or more people die at the same time. The law presumes that the people died together, unless there is evidence to the contrary. This presumption can be rebutted by evidence that the people did not die together. If the presumption is rebutted, the property will be distributed as if the people had died separately. Who is deemed to have died first? The person who is deemed to have died first is the one whose death is determined to have occurred first by the court. This determination is made by looking at the evidence presented by the parties involved.
