    You can request an autopsy through the hospital. I also suggest that you find out if your father's employer was a Workers' Compensation subscriber. If so, and depending on his cause of death, his survivors may be able to apply for death benefits.

    The first question is whether your father's employer was a Workers' Compensation subscriber. If so, there is likely a complete bar to a lawsuit. If not, the people who could sue would be defined by the Texas wrongful death statute, And would include his surviving spouse, children or parents. If the death occurred out-of-state, this analysis could be different. I encourage you to contact an attorney to discuss your case.

    I am sorry to learn of the loss of your mother. The question of whether or not you have a viable medical malpractice lawsuit depends on what an expert physician says after review of the medical records. I suggest that you contact a qualified medical malpractice attorney to help evaluate your case.

    First of all, I am sorry to hear what you have gone through. From a legal perspective, though, I do not believe that the injury and disfigurement that you have described are sufficient to justify the significant expense of a medical malpractice lawsuit. In my opinion, your best bet is to seek treatment from a plastic surgeon.

    I am sorry to hear this sad situation. In order to determine if there is a viable medical malpractice case, you need to find out whether or not the misdiagnosis and delay in proper treatment has caused significant harm to your mother. The major question is whether or not proper, timely treatment would've prevented your mother's death. I recommend that you contact a qualified medical practice attorney in your area to discuss your case.
