23. 18 years makes sense...
If a child were to be delivered with issues, 18 years is an appropriate amount of time for the child to come to the age of majority and bring suit (without the parents being involved).

Actually, I am a bit surprised its not 18 years and 1 (day, month, 6 months). Either way - It seems to be a Statute of Limitations that allows latent issues to be discovered and/or a chance for the child to sue of his own standing.
