Due to them being a victim of clinical negligence, resulting in their death.
Clinical negligence is the term used, and based on any of the following occurrence criteria which implicates a health provider;

What Is the Time Limit for Clinical Negligence Claims?
Clinical negligence claim starts within 3 years of receiving the treatment, or when you first realised you are suffering from an injury which you feel came about as a result of clinical negligence. However, the 3 years limit doesn’t apply to children below 18 years of age. For a child who you think may have suffered from clinical negligence, they must be up to 18 years old before starting a claim. Otherwise, a parent or close relative will have to claim on their behalf.
Another fact worth bearing in mind for anyone approaching us to help them pursue a claim for clinical negligence compensation, is this. An adult who can’t manage their mental disabilities has to recover from their disabilities before starting their claim. The 3 years limit doesn’t apply until such time as they recover. Meanwhile, for a mentally disabled adult, as with a child below 18 years of age, a close relative or parent can claim for them.
