I am a solicitor in Scotland and I am sorry for your loss and the circumstances. However, you can’t sue a lawyer for pursuing a claim against your wife on behalf of a client. A solicitor pursuing a case for someone is entitled to communicate the claim and take it to court or whatever has to be done. Unless the solicitor acted in a way that no other solicitor would have done then you don’t have a claim I’m afraid.
No, in my opinion you can’t. It is not reasonably foreseeable that if you pursue a civil claim the person will die as a result. You would not succeed on causation and foreseeability I’m afraid.
