Legal Question

Asked on: 7/30/13, 10:03 am

I was in an auto-accident in May of 2000 with numerous broken bones and internal injuries, ever since I had the accident I have been complaining to doctors, physicians, and physical therapists that there was something wrong with my left shoulder and the only thing they would do was to send me to physical therapy which wasn't working. Finally in April of 2013 they give me an MRI on my left shoulder and find out that it has been torn. I talked to a lawyer in my home town and they said that I was too late to file, because the statues of limitations had run out. After doing some searching I discovered that the state of Pennsylvania adopted a law called the Discovery rule, which I believe I fall into that category. Is that correct?
