While in the hospital my mother died of a doctor prescribed accidental overdose of her heart medication. I need to speak to someone regarding an action relation to this but live in the Buffalo, NY area and don't know attorneys in PDX.

I've called Kenneth Hiller's firm, but they wanted me to put up $2,000 to have a doctor look over her records to see if there was a case. I have a letter from the hospital explaining that the doctor misplaced the decimal point when inputting the medication order, as well as the Death Certificate listing the overdose as the #1 cause of death. I don't have $2K to spend to have someone tell me what documentation from the hospital and the death certificate already tell me.
This happened some 10 months ago (I was grieving and unmotivated to do much of anything, as she was the only remaining close family I had), so the clock is ticking.
