Hi, thanks so much for requesting me. I'm so sorry to hear about your situation. This to me sounds like a classic case of negligence based on medical malpractice. Negligence simply means that there was a duty that the other party owed and they breached that duty in some way. What is most important is that it is proven that the defendant breached their duty of care because that is what mostly determines whether there is a cause of action. Basically, the question is, “Did the defendant’s actions fall below the standard of care for a reasonable person in a similar situation?” If the answer to that question is yes, then there is negligence and you are entitled to damages. In this case, what that probably means is that if he had left her on her meds, she may still be alive. Damages can be difficult to calculate, but if you click here you can use a calculator help you understand.

What specific questions did you have for me regarding this so I can help?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
