Whitney Houston Case of Wrongful Death?

February 15, 2012 by The Sawaya Law Firm

The very news of the loss of the great singer Whitney Houston has again raised the ugly question, why are great talents allowed to be placed in life threatening situations that rob the world of rare performers? Whitney Houston, like Michael Jackson and others over the years are not like the rest of us. These talented people have handlers who prepare their visits, live in doctors as in the case of Michael Jackson, and attendants, in the case of Whitney Houston according to some news stations. Just as in an automobile accident, in the case of death, the question begs to be answered, why is it not wrongful to let this happen? Why is it not wrongful death? Where were her attendants? Did this great singer simply drown in her own bathtub with others around her?

Houston was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. on February 11, 2012 in a hotel room bathtub with bottles of prescription drugs. There is speculation that drugs were involved, but the toxicology report hasn’t been released.

Houston with a large staff of care givers, security and doctors was somehow left unattended for long enough, during the middle of the day to tragically die. Was someone in her staff negligent and responsible for her death? The UK magazine the Mirror explains, up to nine doctors may be under investigation, including Beverly Hills’ Mickey Find Pharmacy & Grill, which prescribed to Michael Jackson for years.

Whitney Houston’s family plan to lay her to rest in Newark, N.J. and a service will be held at New Hope Baptist Church. This is where Whitney first showcased her incredible talents as one of world’s most brilliant singers.

We send our prayers to Whitney and her family. If you have lost someone because of the negligence of another there is justice and we may be able to help.
