Your Legal Rights After A Health Crisis 
When someone experiences a health crisis or medical injury, they may not consider the possibility of medical negligence. The problem is that if you suffer a life-altering health injury due to medical errors, there is a limited time to recover for the financial burdens, and physical pain and suffering you are experiencing. As months pass, the statute of limitations-- that is, the period of time one has to file a claim to prove that medical negligence occurred-may run out. Unfortunately, every week families are left in difficult, and/or permanently debilitating situations, without being able to seek justice and compensation. The time limits for filing a claim are decided by each state and vary greatly by incident. Read more.

The article states that "Sepsis" means little to most Americans, but is a condition we should know about, as our lives may depend on it.
