"Is an autopsy necessary if you plan to sue a doctor for medical malpractice?"

Yes. It is nearly impossible to prove that the death was caused by medical negligence without an autopsy.

When you claim that a doctor’s carelessness caused someone’s death, you have to show that this negligence was the direct cause.  An autopsy becomes important, because there are so many reasons why a patient may have died. You have to show that the medical malpractice was the number one reason that led to the death.
