A: Certainly some of what you are describing could be suspicious, or it could be coincidence. On these limited facts, it's difficult to know for sure. If you have strong reason to believe that someone was negligently killed (not intentionally), consider consulting both a personal injury attorney and the police. I will warn you, however, that insurance does not typically cover intentional crimes (i.e. murder and certain types of homicide). Likewise, most people do not have sufficient assets of their own, such that an attorney would be interested in taking a personal injury lawsuit against an individual. So, you may have serious difficulty finding a personal injury attorney who is interested in investigating an alleged murder. Accidental death is actually much easier to pursue. Hence, the police may be your best bet if you believe foul play is involved. Good luck!
