I am currently dating a woman with epilepsy, i am concerned

I am currently dating a woman with epilepsy, i am concerned about assisting her in the case of a siezure. Could i be held liable in the case of injury or death resulting from her siezure, possibly by her family, if for instance they were to claim that i didn't respond appropriately, meaning i waited to long to call an ambulance for her, or in some way was negligent in how i handled the situation.

I am a 68 year old woman in Tennessee who needs to know: No.

I am a 68 year old woman in Tennessee who needs to know:JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No. I want to sue someone and I have many grievances but I am not trying to sue just for the sake of suing. If I don't have a case, I don't want to sue. The problem is, I don't know if the things done to me were illegal or what I would call them if I had to sue.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Tennessee.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes. One of my adversaries is a local attorney -- not well liked but a local boy nonetheless. He is a personal friend of my sister. Together, they changed my mother's will, made out a new power of attorney naming my sister, basically re-wrote a lifetime of paperwork my mother had in place, just so they could steal her entire estate. Me and two of my siblings were disinherited. I want to say something like "interference with an inheritance" or claim damages for the emotional suffering they caused me, or something like that. Most recently, I discovered that, prior to re-writing all my mother's legal papers, my sister had stolen her identity and racked up $38,000 in fraudulent credit card debt. She had already passed this off on the Probate Court as my mother's debt before we got proof that she had done this. Perhaps none of the local attorneys want to help me because this is shaping up to be a criminal matter. Or, maybe they just don't want to name a fellow attorney as a co-conspirator in a civil matter. Only about a month ago, I discovered that my mother actually died of dehydration and neglect, not kidney failure like my sister told me. My sister was my mother's primary caregiver and held her Power of Attorney for Healthcare. There is quite a bit of proof that she isolated my mother from her other children, then...left alone with her....simply withheld water and basic medical care and let her die. She had set this up so that she was already the only beneficiary of my mother's new will, was the executor so she could see it smoothly through probate, all kinds of bad stuff. There is no question in my mind that with this kind of groundwork laid, my sister let my mother die. I think I also have a case for wrongful death. What exactly do I have?
