Sorry to hear about your mother's passing. Since she collapsed at work it is a tricky situation because worker's comp. could be involved if her job caused her heart attack. If her job did not cause her heart attack then you could potentially have a case against her employer, and you should talk to a local personal injury attorney. However, if her job caused the hart attack then worker' comp. would apply and you could not sue her employer.
