Malpratice suit?

We recently lost a family member after abdominoplasty. During the procedure, a hernia was repaired. After the surgery (out-patient) our family member was sent home where she perished from exsanguation due to coagulopathy according to an autopsy performed by a pathologist hired by the surgeon who performed the procedure. Additionally, the surgeon ordered a blood thinner for our relative during the procedure. We are trying to determine if legal action should be taken against the surgeon.
