My father died from triple bypass surgery. We just found out they performed TMR laser surgery also with no consent and TMR is a very risky surgery that takes a separate consent form. Plus it was new to this hospital. It was never even mention to my father or us. There is much more. Will discovery rule work here
The Discovery Rule may not apply to this fact pattern as the injury was known to you, but consult local counsel for further clarity.
