    Your father may very well have a claim, but the cost and time to pursue a medical case like this could be cost prohibitive. You should discuss this with a lawyer in your state who specializes in medical cases.

    I handle medical malpractice cases, and this could be worth pursuing. You'd definitely need to get the doctor's records, along with the hospital records. There are many questions that need answering before it can be determined whether you have a claim worth pursuing, though.

    This is not exactly a "medical malpractice" situation. You more likely have a claim against the local police and/or government operating the jail, for failing to get you the treatment you needed. The big question is whether you had any lasting or worsened injury due to the delay.

    I agree with Ronald and David. Damages would be my biggest concern here. If he pulls through and has no lasting problems, the cost and time to pursue such a case might not be worth it. You should definitely contact an attorney if there are longer term or permanent problems resulting from the ruptured appendix, etc. This may take time to determine, though.
