Can suicide be considered wrongful death?

A suicide can be considered a wrongful death under the right circumstances. For example, I helped on a case that involved a drug addiction recovery center. The center did some pretty shady things which resulted in the patient being wrongfully discharged. Because the patient was discharged he relapsed and committed suicide. If the patient wasn’t wrongfully released he likely would have recovered. In that case you can sue the facility for the suicide and argue that it is a wrongful death. Other factual scenarios might apply as well. Contact a wrongful death lawyer or Kentucky personal injury lawyer for a free consultation.
