The quick background (without making this too long-winded): my sibling was on a couple of different medications that doctors prescribed them, and they took as directed. Before the holiday season, they became ill and were not feeling well. They were visibly ill, even had yellow skin that was obviously a red flag for even someone who is not a medical professional. However, they were told to go home and rest and they would be fine in a few days.
That is not what happened - the doctors ran blood work and other tests when the doctor visit occurred, but my sibling was not asked to come back in. Shortly after that things got severely worse.

I'm wondering if there is anything preliminary conversations/consultations I can have before taking it to that step.
I also don't want to upset the rest of my family, so I will obviously need to speak to them before doing anything official, but shouldn't there be some type of organization that assists families with this type of thing prior to them going right to a medical malpractice attorney?
