A: A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. I'm very sorry for the loss of your husband. The best way for you to get an answer to your question would be to reach out to attorneys who handle med mal/wrongful death cases. The question you ask calls for a medical opinion. If after speaking with you, an attorney felt that you had the basis for a case, they could request the records and review them with a medical professional - that's how your question would be answered. Most firms that handle such cases offer free initial consults (virtually as well in many cases, due to COVID). So it's possible you might be able to have a consult without leaving your home. Good luck
