A: If it's your son, his statute for anything done before the age of 18 is his 20th birthday in most states. If he was under 18 when it happened and it's not yet his 20th birthday, contact a member of the Arkansas Trial Lawyers Assn who handles malpracticeissues.-they give free consults If it's the vaccine you think was at fault it is very difficult ot prove that but for some types of vaccines there are US Court of Claims proceedings.
