You are correct, time is running out. Sounds like you may have a possible government claim against a county hospital. By and large, when you have a government claim, you only have 6 months to file an appropriate government claim against the correct governmental entity. If there is no government claim, then you have a year to file a lawsuit against any private facility. You need to get the medicals records and have them reviewed by an attorney and a medical expert as soon as possible. Contact an attorney right away. We handle such cases as do many of the attorneys here on AVVO. You should call someone as soon as you can to discuss.
