What is the statute of limitations for a personal injury?

Question Details: My son had a traumatic accident, a gunshot would to the lower face. The rebuilding of his jaw with titanium was performed. The pain was horrible, he was in ICU. The next day, the titanium broke. Yes, that's right, the plastic surgeon had to come and tell me, after removing the defective material, that, yes, indeed, the material had broken and even told us the purchasing department had ordered low cost material from China. The pain was horrific. After removal, he contracted bacterial pneumonia that put him back on the ventilator once again. More to the story but I feel that my son was cheated out of so much.
