Do I have a case for malpractice if my husband's doctor kept him on a medication that he should have been taken off of?

Question Details: My husband was treated for kidney cancer with Sutent. Approximately 6 1/2 months into treatment, he was taken to the ER but died within 24 hours. Sutent attacked and shut down liver. Lab tests prior to death showed liver enzymes steadily increasing but no word from doctor to stop Sutent. I wrote letter to the doctor and he called me. Asked me if I could forgive him but he would not answer questions asked in my letter. He wanted me to come in and talk with him face-to-face. I wasn't ready to do that. I had been told Sutent should have been stopped and liver may have had chance to heal. Also, month before death doctor told us he wanted to try new medication at end of Sutent cycle. At the ER, the doctor was going to helicopter my husband to hospital about 200 miles away. I was told to go home to pack and head out. I live 200 miles away from where they were taking him in another state. However, my husband died while I was home so I was not able to be with him. I have all medical and lab reports. Any chance of a claim against doctor and/or hospital.
