There are certain considerations which can extend the statute of limitations but you don't appear to fall into their categories. Also, most states have something called the statute of repose which is the last time suit can be filed, even for people who are incompetent, minors, etc. You would also likely be outside of that statute too.
I'm very, very sorry, but I believe it is too late. Of course, the advice of a local attorney would be the final word on this issue, so I recommend you consult a few attorneys in your area before you reach a conclusion. You can search the attorney profiles here on Avvo. Good luck!
