A wrongful death case is a type of medical malpractice that occurs when someone dies due to someone else’s negligence. A wrongful death typically results from accidental or even intentional injuries inflicted on the victim. People who die from natural causes or old age are not considered wrongful death cases. However, if someone’s negligence led to someone’s death, then it may be possible to receive compensation.
