I may be able to enter into the Camp Lejeune lawsuit on behalf of my late father, but I am also not on speaking terms with my mother, and if she will receive the proceeds from any settlement then I'm not going to bother with it. Also would I need to be executor of his estate to file?
The estate needs to bring the action for the claim. If your father passed without a will, then the Michigan intestacy laws will apply. This means that your mother, if married to your father at his time of death, will receive most of the assets of the estate. More information and facts would need...View More

Is there still a case? It was a Johnson and Johnson mesh she had put in her in 2012. She saw a Specialist in 2018 and he told her the quality of life she had now is the best it’s going to be and it couldn’t be removed. It had already broken down in her body by then and caused a fistula. Long... View More
I'm very sorry for the loss of your mother. A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a week. You ask very good questions.

Our 30 year old daughter passed last year suddenly, no will, now my ex got a lawyer and is suing the hospital etc. for wrongful death, medical malpractice and other damages. I was sent forms to sign that I agree with her and fully cooperate with their legal services, which I don’t agree! My... View More
Interesting. Wrongful death and medical malpractice claims are complex enough that you would be well advised to discuss this letter with an attorney before signing it. Your ex can, quite likely, proceed without your signature or cooperation.
I assume your wrongful death claim would be for your sibling? You could possibly open a probate estate for that person and initiate a wrongful death suit. It's highly complex so you'll need an attorney.
My ob gyn said my baby was healthy when I was pregnant but I was sick so she prescribed me zofran. I was not informed of any major risks to myself or my baby by taking this drug.
