Q: My wife died 8/15/20 from fighting 3 years of Multiple Myeloma. She was walking and communicating with me before
her appointment on 8/10/20. They admitted her and sent her home by ambulance because we live on second floor apartment and she was unable to walk or talk when she came home. The hospital said there would be no charge to us since we had BCBS insurance and all deductible were met. The ambulance broke down for 2 hours and when they got here they put my wife through lots of pain bringing her upstairs. I made a video of the entire ordeal. Just got home and the ambulance billed my wife who is now dead over $800.00. Do I have a legal case against either party?
A: An Arkansas attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for three weeks. I'm very sorry for the loss of your wife. It's difficult to answer your question based on these brief facts. You could reach out to Arkansas attorneys who could retrieve medical records to make a more meaningful assessment if they believed there could be a basis for a case. In terms of access, jurors could want to know more about the stairway, corridor, and doorway involved. Good luck
