The Physician-Patient Privilege in Wrongful Death Actions

In wrongful death actions, the issue of the physician-patient privilege, which protects the privacy of a decedent's medical records, often arises. The general rule is that unless the patient/decedent waives the privilege, a physician is not allowed to disclose any information acquired in attending to the patient in a professional capacity. Without this evidence, however, the case can be hard to prove. With an experienced attorney on your side, you can be assured of gathering and presenting the best evidence available for proving your case.
