Generally, anyone who causes the death of another person because they were negligent or otherwise guilty of wrongdoing can be sued for wrongful death. The wrongful death lawsuit happens in civil court, and it does not take the place of any criminal charges that might be brought against a party for causing the death of another. Doctors, other medical staff, drivers in automobile accidents, pharmaceutical companies and murderers have all been named in wrongful death lawsuits.
