I would suggest that her husband start gathering her medical records now and consult with an attorney
who specializes in medical malpractice cases as soon as possible. There are time limits on bringing
negligence cases in each state, in many states this is two years in some states the time limit is shorter.
A medical expert will need to evaluate the records to determine if there was substandard or negligent care which caused your daughter's injury and this takes time. You don't want to be in a situation where there
is not enough time to evaluate the case and you are running up against a statute of limitations. Once you
know if there is a legal case to pursue, you can decide if you want to pursue it.
Please note well that this reply is merely informative. It should not be the basis of any decisions you make regarding your legal rights as far too little information has been provided to supply a solid legal opinion. Also, you should be aware that all jurisdictions impose time limits ("statutes of limitations") within which suit must be properly commended, and the failure to do so will supply an absolute defense to the claim. You should consult further with us or another attorney if you wish to investigate or pursue the matter further.
