It was during childbirth and the Dr. pushed really hard on my lower back when giving me the epidural..i have had other children so i knew something was wrong i am not able to lay on my stomach even when i sleep, and presently i am experiencing numbness in my toes and leg pain...i never wanted to pursue anything but i fear the older i get my condition will worsen
It is probably too late at this point.
Family Law Attorney
Based on the very sparse facts set forth, unlikely. There is a three (3) year statute of limitations on personal injury actions (3 years from date if incident which caused injury) and it sounds like you knew within that three year period that you had sustained an injury, but chose not to take any action. If so, any action is now barred because more than three years have passed.
No attorney-client relatonship is created in responding to this question, and advice provided is based solely on very limited facts presented, and therefore may not be correct. You are advised that it is always best to contact a competent and experienced with the practice of law in the county in which you reside, particularly as it relates to family law, child support, custody and visitation (a/k/a "parenting time") issues, including 209A abuse-prevention restraining orders (a/k/a "ROs" in legal-speak), regarding un-emancipated children, under the age of 22.
Not sure why you waited so long...
