Q: So I should seek out a medical malpractice lawyer?
A: If you suspect medical malpractice caused the death of a close relative, then you should consult with an attorney to determine whether your claim is viable and regarding your rights. Note that there is a 1-year statute of limitations on wrongful death claims that are based on medical malpractice. The clock starts ticking from the date of death.
