Hire an experience malpractice attorney in your area. They can get the records, and have an expert review to determine if there was malpractice. Do this at soon as possible, as CA does have a short statute of limitations.
I am sorry to hear all of this, and sympathize with the loss of a loved one.
Medical Malpractice cases are complicated, and even facts as detailed as these are not nearly enough from which to provide complete and detailed advice. Please do consult a medical malpractice attorney in your area who will be able to help you obtain medical records and get them evaluated to better understand whether malpractice has occurred, and what must be done next.
The above is not intended to be legal advice, but may be used for general information. Please contact an attorney for specific help tailored to your needs. www.figgardenlaw.com
getting the medical records was a very good idea - you will need to take all your documents and meet with attorney(s) experienced in personal injury. While many attorneys, like our office, do not charge for the consultation there may be a charge to have a medical expert (doctor) review the records
You should consult with a Doctor/attorney for your malpractice case. You can find one in avvo. Sorry for your loss. Best of luck. Call for a referral to a Malpractice attorney. Best of luck.

I'm very sorry for your tragic loss. You need to consult with an experienced and reputable medical malpractice attorney. You shouldn't necessarily make your decision on who to hire based on this website.
I am sorry for your experience. We would need to review the medical records to see if there was a breach in the standard of care. Damages seem to be substantial, but we have to link it up to someone's wrongdoing, outside of common practice. do not hesitate because you probably have a 1 year Statute of Limitations running from the date of the heart attack.
