Ms. Hamilton identifies strengths and weaknesses in cause of death and standards of care to help your firm proceed with confidence.

When care failed to meet standards, Ms. Hamilton can assist in determining if substandard care contributed to adverse outcomes of a suspected choking event, aspiration, dehydration, health decline or death. The Lios Manhe mission is to be a trusted partner to plaintiff or defense by providing thorough analysis and independent opinions supported by science and based upon evidence collected.
