A young girl in Detroit had a surgical procedure to remove her tonsils and died hours later. Is this a case of Medical Malpractice, was there negligence in a simple procedure and after care?
Anyialah Greer was just 9 years old when she went in for a routine tonsillectomy. Sonia Gambrell, the child’s Mother, said she was nervous about sending her daughter into surgery. They even pushed the surgery off for 9 years, but in December they decided to bring her daughter into the hospital for the operation.

Sonia Gambrell now wants to sue Detroit Medical Center, owners of Children’s Hospital of Michigan, where 9-year old Greer, had the tonsillectomy on December 8 before she suffered cardiac arrest and died.
