I’m about to head to the funeral of a family member that passed away this week. Without doubt, there are other ways I would have liked to spend my Friday morning.
As one might expect, the
ambulance chaser diligent young attorney in me has his antennae up for a potential client opportunity. It’s not every day that a regular morbidly obese person dies from extensive and invasive cardiovascular surgery.
Since he was not an immediate family member, I’ve been wondering what the protocol is on the following:
- Do I ask the estate executor to view the medical records at the wake or the funeral?
- What is the potential punishment for leaving my business card in casket?
- What if I leave another attorney’s business card in the casket?
