death after denistry

My daughter went to the dentist to have a crown replaced, my daughter was not given antibiotics which her records was well noted.  Needless to say my daughter suffered because of a viral bacteria that set in shortly after. Actually she went to the dentist on Friday  August 25, 2006 and was admitted the next day Saturday August 26,2006.  My daughter died August 29th, i tried to file a law suite but i was told i could not because she had Sickle Cell Anemia, and the lawyer didn't think he could pursue because i didn't file right away.  I didn't know truly what happened to my daughter until i have done the research on my own.  What would cause cardiac arrest, well recent dental work.  I immediately tried to seek help but with no prevail, i have my daughter medical records from the denistry and the her last admission.  I am appalled how the precautions isn't taken when it comes down to denistry. So i would like to come on board and speak my case to have dentisty's take accountability for their work. 

In Loving Memory of my daughter De`Annah Christine Austin
