A: Doesn't say who "she" was and what her relation was. If she was an unpaid relative, wife etc she may be careless but it's not something I see anyone having a claim on. What you should do is contact a member of the Kansas Assn for Justice and get an in person consultation. They give free consultations. You will need the approximate dates on when things happened, etc.

If the person that died was a drug user the case may have a low value--sorry, but that's the reality.
