Wrongful death lawsuits for medical malpractice

Has anyone here ever been involved in a wrongful death lawsuit?

Let's say the situation looks like this: the person who died had serious physical problems; she was given medication that in fact exacerbated her problems. Her death was in direct correlation to this medication.

Also, she could have been given medications to stabilize her condition and she was not given these medications. There was no reason given as to why she wasn't given these medications. There is a lot of evidence they would have helped her.

So, would you go for a medical malpractice suit if this person was your relative?

Thats a sticky situation...There are so many consent forms that patients sign, and (un-knowingly) may have signed something for (Dr. or practice they work for).. It is harder than ever to succesfully sue someone for medical malpractice now with all the changes in laws and such...Talk to an attorney that specializes in that area of law/medicine...
I'm not one but I believe it may have to be a Gross negligence or something substantial...
