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.
