More details to this question:
wife got a punctured and collapse lung at hospital, became paralyzed at hospital, necrosis of left leg, blood clot of left leg as doctors told me, not treated and she died 9 days later. They buried their mistakes in a ton of paper work and lawyers are not to fond of paper work, to time consuming, as told to me by a friendly nurse.

Its not that lawyers are not fond of paperwork - but simply that like any other business we have no desire to spend tens or hundreds of hours of uncompensated time to see IF a case exists let alone devoted to an actually viable claim. The starting point for a medical malpractice issue will be for you to  insist on an autopsy, then gather ALL of the medical records and then consult with a lawyer to secure a proper medical record review to examine your concerns and determine if some medical negligence occurred. Any potential legal claim will revolve around those findings. 

All responses are NOT to be considered legal advice nor to be relied upon in any as such nor to establish any form of attorney/client relationship. Opinions expressed are solely informational and not a substitute for proper legal advice provided by a properly retained after thoroughly researching the issues presented.

Legal Malpractice
The vast majority of attorneys act ethically and diligently representing the interests of their clients. But what happens when you hire a lawyer who has a conflict of interest, makes errors in your representation, is negligent or breaches his or her fiduciary duty? In those instances, you may have grounds for a legal malpractice complaint or lawsuit. Law firms that represent the victims of legal malpractice can help you file a complaint with your state's lawyer registration and disciplinary commission, while also filing a civil lawsuit against your former attorney.
