I was mis diagnosed at a hospital is this a case?

1 Answers. Asked on Oct 11th, 2017 on Medical Malpractice - Florida
More details to this question:
After I got into an accident (5/11/2017) I went to a hospital and they told me I only had a broken femur. That night I stayed at the hospital. As well as staff members mistreating me and threating to kick me out of the hospital for calling the nurse for help and my girlfriend being there half of the time and the other half over the phone. I went home the next day with very bad pain in my rib area. I was in such pain a few days later (5/17/2017) I had to return to the hospital when they then diagnosed me with broken ribs, to the point where I could've punctured my lungs. I would like to know if this is a case?

Not for malpractive  - no on the facts described. There are no real damages as thankfully you didn't puncture a lung.
