My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: New York City.
My mother was an housekeeping YMCA employee at an New York City branch.
She died from a ruptured brain aneurysm on October 2010.
From the surveillance tapes at the YMCA facility, it shows that she entered the female locker restroom at 12:30 and she was not found by fellow co-workers until after 3:00pm when the Ambulance had arrived.
1. Is it a viable case to sue YMCA for not being able to find my mother in time?
2. Will it matter if I am to prove that the YMCA staff's lack of emergency procedures have partially contributed to my mother's death?
3. What about the delay in providing immediate aide to my mother?
4. Would it matter if the private bathroom does not have an emergency alert button?
I do not wish to waste tax-payers dollars if there is no case, but if anyone has any insight or advice, please let me know.
