Hi Lancy,

Thank you for using Just Answer. In a medical malpractice case, there are two major components: liability and damages. First, you would need to establish that the diagnosis was wrong. Then, you would need to establish damages from the misdiagnoses. Even though you suffered distress, because you were not in actual danger, and you did not require additional treatment or surgery as a result of the misdiagnoses, it would be difficult to establish damages.

Unfortunately, from what you said, it does not sound like you have a suit against the hospital. I apologize if that was not the answer you were looking for, but I'm glad to hear that you are not dying.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
