Melissa Rivers Plans To Sue Over Joan Rivers' Death Because She Wants The Answers She Deserves

We hope Melissa Rivers can get to the bottom of all this.

After losing her mother, Joan Rivers, during a surgery that somehow went wrong, Melissa is still waiting for answers about what happened.

While it was ruled that Joan passed from a lack of oxygen, Melissa understandably wants to know what happened in the operating room to cause all this.

Now, she will reportedly file a lawsuit in order to get the truth.

Melissa plans to sue the medical center and the doctors in order to get to the root of the problem. She feels like she has been shut down after the New York Dept. of Health and Human Services found Yorkville Endoscopy LLC to be "deficient."

She believes both the facility and Dept. of Health know what went wrong, but aren't informing her of the exact cause.

With a lawsuit, both staff and doctors will be forced to sit down and take depositions where they will have to answer questions about the day Joan stopped breathing.

This will surely be a difficult time for Melissa and her family, but hopefully it helps to give some closure.

    If she wanted answers maybe she should have allowed an autopsy? Autopsy's give answers to cause of death, lawsuits bring you 1. News Coverage 2. Maybe some answers if you are lucky and 3. Money. Losing Joan was a loss for the world and she is so missed!

    It's amazing how people react one someone dies. I mean, seriously, Joan Rivers was not going to live forever. She had lived a long life and was even quoted as saying that she was okay dying on an operating table. She enjoyed her life and lived a long one. Although she didn't die while getting cosmetic surgery, she put herself at risk time and time again, by going under the knife. The body can only handle so much general anesthesia before it gives out. Melissa should have allowed an autopsy if she wanted to know the exact cause of death.

    It's all about money with the jews. If she wanted to know the cause of death, she should have had an autopsy performed. The lawsuit is just a play for money and attention. Jews are despicable little vermin.

    Re: LR – EXACTLY!!!! She should have allowed the autopsy to be done! Will she allow them to dig her up?? I don't even remember if she was buried or cremated. Joan knew she had health issues but put herself at risk time and time again for vanity. SHe had to know one day it was not going to turn out so well… serioulsy. She took the risks and lost this time.

    Melissa CERTAINLY DOES NOT need ANYMORE money I think she can get by on $130 million. she has every right to know what the F,,, happened in that room and I may be wrong but I don't think her religion allows autopsies to be performed.

    I know it may be HARD for Melissa to hear what happened to Joan but I'm so glad she decided to file the lawsuit cuz I have always believe if NOTHING Else they need to explain Why they gave Joan PROPOFOL considering her age and the fact that in the beginning that Clinic put out a statement that they didn't USE PROPOFOL AT THAT CLINIC
