Death and Dying - Death Certificates

issues event law determined

The laws of each state require that the manner in which an individual has died be determined and recorded on a death certificate. Coroners or medical examiners must deal with issues establishing whether someone can be legally blamed for causing the death. Such issues are subsequently determined by CRIMINAL LAW in the event that someone is charged with HOMICIDE, and by TORT LAW in the event of a civil suit for WRONGFUL DEATH.
