What is the difference between a wrongful death and medical malpractice?
A wrongful death lawsuit can be the result of medical malpractice, but not all wrongful deaths are due to medical malpractice. Also, not all medical malpractice cases involve a wrongful death. Many victims of medical malpractice who bring lawsuits are seeking damages for an injury.
A wrongful death lawsuit can be based on a car accident, product liability, premises liability, a workplace accident, a construction site accident or even a criminal act. Medical malpractice is simply one basis for a wrongful death lawsuit.
A medical malpractice wrongful death lawsuit requires the plaintiff to prove the same elements of negligence that must be shown in any wrongful death lawsuit.
