A: You are right and I suggest you start a campaign to get your state to change it's statute of limitations, but the problem is that when she went and they found the catheter,she knew there was an issue--maybe not a dialysis level issue but there was an issue. The clock started running. She didn't consult an attorney then and it's too late to do it now.There oughta be a law? You are right. But there wont be one if people like you and your mom don't organize to change the law.
