My Dear friend + landlord over 10 years coerced me not to sue or collect money from bills incurred by his brother's German shepherd that came into his property. The German Shepard attacked and bite me and my dog. 1 day Following the incident, both Brother and his Mom visited me following a shower and while I was in a towel heading to my bedroom cornered me and coerced me not to do anything about the dog attack and leave the subject alone. I asked to excuse myself to put clothes on and the Mother stated: "don't worry its as if you just got out of the pool." My best friend Roger Humble died early last year from depression and over drinking. Wanting to close this chapter in my life and move forward I am addressing this civil claim to cover my bills incurred from the dog attack. The attack occurred April 27, 2016. Although I spend a few months out of the year in California I am a Florida resident. Last year I had a baby on the East Coast and have not been back to California or residence since last year May 2018.
-IS it possible for me to sue the brother if I am 1 week over the 2-year window and recover money for hospital bills, vet bill and plastic surgery in CALIFORNIA?
