Can You Sue a Hospital for Wrongful Death?
Is it possible to sue a hospital for wrongful death? The answer is an unequivocal YES. What’s more, is that you don’t have to prove that one physician caused the death due to their error, as it could be that multiple doctors handled your loved one such as in the case of surgery. By suing a hospital, you’re suing the administration who will then be the ones that pay out your settlement via their insurance provider.
