The only way a person can find out if they have a malpractice case is to have a med mal lawyer order their medical records and send to an expert to review to ascertain whether there was a breach of the standard of care. Make sure you retain a lawyer immediately, as there is a deadline for filing known as the statute of limitations. Good luck.

You need to speak with a local lawyer familiar with medical malpractice cases. Only after a review of your records and investigation into the facts and circumstances of your case can your question be answered. However, there seems to be enough to justify an investigation. Good luck.
Unfortunately while you might have been misdiagnosed you Probably do not have a claim since you have sought other treatment and been cured of your original problem. Medical negligence claims are very time consuming and expensive for lawyers to handle and you really need some permanent disability to pursue the case. Otherwise the costs of litigation may outweigh the recovery you receive. It is simply fortunate that you were able to find a physician who could take care of your pain.
