Wrongful Death Claims

Wrongful Death is the death of an individual as a direct result of the negligence of another individual, company, or entity.

In order for wrongful death to be attributed to medical malpractice, it must be shown that the doctor or hospital staff member acted in a negligent way by either misdiagnosing an illness, causing damage during a surgical procedure, or a similar type of medical negligence.

Who can bring a Wrongful Death Claim

Wrongful death claims can be brought by relatives, siblings, or members of the deceased’s estate who have lost a loved one.
