Frequently pneumonia will not show up on X-ray in its acute phase. Although, the xrays may show something that needed to be addressed immediately. Either way, that doesn't get the hospital off the hook. The symptoms displayed and the lab test results will play a large role here. So, depending on what they show a case could be strong. That is a long way of saying that you really need to have a qualified attorney look at this before you really know with certainty. We work in Oklahoma frequently. Call if you have questions. 888-333-9709 or jim@Girardslaw.com
