District court's dismissal of plaintiff's suit as time-barred, alleging malpractice by her deceased mother's medical care providers, is vacated and remanded where: 1) the date of accrual for plaintiff's personal claim was within the one-year statute of limitations; and 2) under 32 L.P.R.A. section 255, plaintiff is entitled to bring her mother's medical malpractice claim because it was brought within one year of her mother's death.
