Last may 19th2011 I was attacked by a pitbull dog. He bit my hand and wrist and the nurse even stated had I been a few mintues later to the hospital i would have bled out. He was 1/4mm off my main artery in my wrist. However my mom who is a nurse requested they do an extra of my hand where he bit because she was afraid of broken bones. Needless to say no xray. I then went to another hospital in August in a different state only to find out my hand was indeed broken and I required extensive physical therapy and was out of work. I have the doctors papers from Vermont. Can I sue the hospital in NY for not doing an xray?
