Customer Question

Hi, my mum passed away of a heart attack. However she was at work and they did not call an ambulance for 2 hours. They left her sat on a chair in a waiting room. This all happens at her place of work which happens to be a hospital. They claim she was having a panic attack but not hyperventilating. They did a lot wrong I feel. A doctor who treated my mum has said that had someone called an ambulance sober life would have been preserved!

Hi thanks for your message, what is your query please? You wish to sue the hospital?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I think that would be the host of it. She was on a shift at work and in a meeting when this all happened.
Expert:  Jeremy Aldermartin replied 7 months ago.
Hi thank you for your message, ok so in essence you would need to hire a professional negligence solicitor and they Would need to show the hospital fell below the standard expected. You mentioned there was to be an inquest so you may wish to wait for the result of that as the coroners verdict may help your case.
