Your submission is confusing and doesn't provide enough information to analyze. Medical malpractice claims require obtaining all medical records and having them reviewed by an expert. With Kaiser, they also have mandatory arbitration on most of these cases, which means you may not be able to present your case to a jury. The statute of limitations in California on Medical Malpractice is only one year, which means you may be too late. Consult an attorney in Hesperia immediately to know for sure.
