If your mother agreed to pay your medical bills, then, legally, you can sue.

However, it may not be in your best interests, in the long run, to do this. A lawsuit will likely take you several years and cost you a lot of money. It could also destroy any relationship you may have with your mother. Lawsuits between family members are always the most contentious (at least in my experience.) You're opening yourself up to unpleasantness you will likely regret later.
