I consulted an attorney to file a "wrongful death" suit. Attorney says that I must go to
surrogate's court to file for administrator of estate. Don't want to do this as then I would have
to list all my mother's debts (credit card, medical bills- not covered by insurance) Don't even
know if there is a case until medical records are obtained and perused by medical experts.
Right now, I just mark deceased on bills and include notation that there is no estate to probate.
What should I do? Don't want to pay $150 to file and additional costs to be bonded for a case that may never get off the ground
