Can I sue the police department for not completing a wellness check and then my mother died? I suspect they didn’t go inside because she was a hoarder. My brother was ill and lived 4 hours away. I live in Colorado, 21 hours away. We asked the Houston police department to complete a wellness check. They took forever to arrive and once there, they refused to force entry. They claimed we spoke to her within the last 24 hours but we had not. I have reason to believe they didn’t want to force entry because she was a hoarder. After my brother called the police again the next day, they took their time getting there and she was found dead. She saw her doctor one week before before this and was fine. No autopsy was performed. They rushed her through the coroner’s office. I believe She was treated differently because she was a hoarder. Notes: I was not aware of her living conditions until after this occurred. I live in Colorado. Neighbor was able to hear her through the window 11 hours before she was found dead. That’s proof she was alive the first night the wellness check was requested.
