    Answered . Your mom needs to contact a medical malpractice attorney for a consultation immediately. If you are doing it on behalf of your mom, you will not get medical records because of HIPPA laws; and not all records are provided to patients upon their request. An attorney will evaluate the case and gather records for review.
