  • Check your state statutes. You can google it. Sometimes it's only 1 yr but check for your state

  • Well I have just been debating on whether I should or not. I am not a sue happy person at all but it's about the birth of my son. The doctors could have fully prevented my sons premature birth and therefore prevented most if not all my sons health issues. We are drowning in my sons medical bills and most can be directly related to his prematurity.
