Send like a clear case of radiology screw up. You can sue but you have to act fast. You've got to file a claim for damages within six months of the date you were made aware of the malpractice.
There is a different statute of limitation that can be used if you should decide to sue in federal court.
No matter what, you must act quickly if you want to take action.

Good luck.See question
