In seeking an attorney on this site, beware of limiting your search to attorneys with a 10 rating, and carefully read the AVVO disclaimer regarding their rating system. There are certain factors that are given great weight which do not necessarily have any bearing on an attorney's experience, abilities, and results with certain types of cases. Accordingly, the rating numbers can be misleading. Also beware of basing your choice on the fee charged, as a low fee, depending on the skill, experience and determination of the specific attorney handling your case, could actually have an inverse relationship to the amount actually put in your pocket.
If I understand your comments correctly, you need to consult with an attorney who practices in product liability and not medical malpractice. If the attorney determines your mother has a viable case, many physicians will accept and treat your mother based on a Letter of Protection from the attorney. On that basis, no medical insurance is needed.
