Wrongful death is a category that falls under both personal injury and medical malpractice. When it falls under personal injury it is because someone passed away to an average person’s negligence. For example, it was a car or truck accident that caused the death, the negligence was the person driving the car or truck which caused the accident. In medical malpractice it is still when someone else’s negligence is the cause of the death, but in a medical standpoint.
