If you save a person from killing themselves via suicide and injure them accidentally in the process, can they successfully sue you?

    In a sane world, no.

    On the other hand, courts have allowed someone to sue for 'wrongful life'. I frankly don't care what that means.

    In the SANE world, no.  In the litigation-mad U.S., anything goes.  People, lawyers & courts aren't playing with a full deck there.

    There are "good samaritan laws" most places which protect good samaritans. Hey! You can read 'em yourself! Wow!

    They can sue you, the police have been sued many times, even rescuing a victim from a burning car, where the life of the victim was saved, but they were injured in the process of being rescued.

    Yes they can. If you try to save a drowning person unsuccessfully relatives can sue you. It's been done.
