An old man dies after a simple operation. His greedy son sues the hospital and surgeon. His lawsuit has unintended consequences.

When a nice old man dies during a routine operation his son, an attorney, together with his wife, scheme to sue the hospital. Not a very original or engaging episode.

Story about a greedy son and his kind father. My late boyfriend's son is like this son, so I can relate. Drama, no supernatural elements.

It's sad that there are real stories like this - a nice elderly parent with a greedy child (or children) who care more about money than family (and it didn't help in this story that the child was a lawyer). I'm also sure there are people who will sue hospitals like this whether or not there is due cause. Coincidentally, the ad that popped up on my screen while writing this is for Personal Injury Cases (How Much is Yours Worth?).
