I was just wondering if it were possible to file a lawsuit

I was just wondering if it were possible to file a lawsuit against the VA Hospital if it is beyond the statue of limitations? My Dad went to the Va here in Nashville. He wasn't feeling well and he was wanting to transfer his records from New Jersey. Long story short: He was released from the Va (4 Years ago) and he passed away that night. I tried to get answers early on, but no one ever returned nor took my calls. JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? Customer: Nashville, TN JA: Has anything been filed or reported? Customer: Unfortunately, No. I tried to do some research on my own. After not getting anywhere, I just didn't pursue it any further. JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you? Customer: No, I guess I am just looking for some answers no matter the outcome.

My mom died 4/2/2015, due to complications from a "Central Line Placement' error. The pericardium contained blood and the laceration in the right ventricle. My brother and I obtained an attorney, which has wasted almost the entire time for the period to create a law suit. She has dropped the case, and now I am looking for another attorney. We have until April 2, 2017 to file. Whether it is mal practice or wrongful death, can I file the suit or do I have to acquire an attorney?JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And do you have copies of the medical records?Customer: Georgia, yesJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: As far as I know, nothing has been filed. From what she said, in Georgia, you need two experts to identify the failure of the procedure. Either, way, the procedure caused death, as stated on the death certificateJA: Anything else you want the solicitor to know before I connect you?Customer: I have copies of all records....and I think some are missing....still looking at the files. I don't see the records of meds....

My brother was hit and killed by a drunk driver. Two days

My brother was hit and killed by a drunk driver. Two days after he died, we got his medical records and discovered he died from being intubated in his stomach, not his lungs. It was suggested we contact a private investigator to help us sort everything out. We did. My mother and I both signed a contract with a private investigator for 13% of any settlement to the estate. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: There was a $250,000 settlement. After medical bills, attorneys fees, estate fees, and back taxes were paid, my mother received a total of around $25,000. I am not an heir to the estate so I did not receive anything.
