Q: Hi, my daughter passed away on 1/9/09. She had been ill, and so I took her to the Doctor on 12/10/09. I told him she was having nose bleeds, and he looked and asked if she was doing cocaine. No was the answer to that. He never did blood work and sent her home. She had panic disorder and had just lost her job so I guess everything was put off to that. He told her she was healthy and just needed to take care of the panic disorder. One month later she was found dead in her home of a massive gastrointestial hemorraghe. He will not release her medical records without a letter from a lawyer. I am her mother and she left two small boys. What to do? Can you give me a free consultation, or do you think I have no case? Thanks, and please respond.
A: I am sorry to hear of your loss. I am happy to sit down with you and discuss your case. We can help you get the medical records and review the merits of the case. Based on the lack of care, and especially the failure to do any blood work, I suspect a basis for the case; we will however, need to get a medical expert to review the case which we can provide.
Talk to you soon,
