Re: “An Unresolved Death

What if she were drunk? Wouldn't it make her partially or fully responsible for this? In this case while she was not drunk, she was either under influence of drugs or else under apparent tremendous stress which impaired her sound judgment (perhaps Medicaid notified her that they are going to perform an audit?) Further, she was 55 at the time of her death. Where in hell her family and her attorney found that she was going to work 20 more years (rather than 12, 10 or even 7)? Further, even if she earned during her last year $325,000 as her family and attorney contend, that was not a salary earned by MD at Kaiser (which would have been free and clear and subject to taxes only). Quite to the contrary, she had to pay out of her receipts very large expenses (such as malpractice insurance, office rent, receptionist's salary and benefits etc etc). So the real financial loss to the family was at best half of it (actually even much less because she had to pay federal and state taxes on her NET income). Furthermore, substantial part of her net after-tax earnings was spent on herself (medical, car, clothing, food etc) and thus also has to be subtracted. Finally, her husband either already has or in the future will start receiving substantial monthly Social Security widower's benefit and that has to be subtracted too. Thus the grieving family and their trial-happy lawyer shouldn't use this as an opportunity to make themselves millionaires several times over at the expense of City of Alameda taxpayers.
