Dear Customer ,

Thank You for posting your legal question today. I'm attorney Bill offering assistance to your medical negligence and wrongful death inquiry.

If it can be shown that the actions or inactions of the hospital or nursing home sped up the unfortunate death of your mother there could be a civil case here. In fact there could also be criminally negligent manslaughter.

You would need to get a hold on your mother's medical file. As your attorney indicated at stage three illness there is very little the doctors can do but the medical reports should offer more information on this.

You would then need to get the reports evaluated by another doctor to see if there was any negligence on behalf of the hospital.

There are a list of wrongful death and medical negligence attorneys that do bring these kinds of cases.

You can be put in touch here:

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
