I need a lawyer/doctor to review medical records as my daughter died in a county hospital in Los Angeles, CA and time is running

Asked over 1 year ago - Los Angeles, CA

I believe my daughter was not properly treated and she died at the age of 23. Is there anyone who can help me to get the medical records reviewed to see if there is medical malpractice/wrongful death. A claim was filed and I do not have much time left. Please help me. I am disabled and alone, I live in PA and my daughter died in CA.

Additional information

She died from cerebral vasculitis after being in the hospital for the last 3 weeks of her life. I have the majority of medical records but need a professional to read them as I have limited information about her condition.

    Answered . You are correct, time is running out. Sounds like you may have a possible government claim against a county hospital. By and large, when you have a government claim, you only have 6 months to file an appropriate government claim against the correct governmental entity. If there is no government claim, then you have a year to file a lawsuit against any private facility. You need to get the medicals records and have them reviewed by an attorney and a medical expert as soon as possible. Contact an attorney right away. We handle such cases as do many of the attorneys here on AVVO. You should call someone as soon as you can to discuss.
