Money from a Medical Lawsuit - Halal or Prohibited?
  • Question:

    Is the money obtained through a lawsuit for medical errors that caused death, halal? Can the family of the deceased use that money for themselves?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    If there is a genuine case of medical malpractice wherein the victim or the victim’s family file a law suit to claim damages, the money acquired, will be permissible.

    And Allah knows best.
