  1. What you can do it get the appropriate medical care to treat teh fracture.

    Given the short time frame involved I would say that there is nothing to do. There definitely could be a misdiagnosis, but the problem is that there are basically no damages. Damages or the potential for damages is one of the main factors driving whether an attorney will take on a case or not.

  2. Owners of land have a duty to warn or make safe hazardous conditions. If your aunt fell due to a hazardous condition the owners insurance may be liable for her medical costs. Consult with an attorney to determine if there is premises liability. If your looking for a medical malpractice claim refer to Attorney McCormicks answer.
