A: A Pennsylvania attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. As a general matter, it could be difficult to speculate on an x-ray that could have been taken five years ago, statute of limitations issues aside (a Pennsylvania attorney should advise on that). At any rate, that would be a call that a medical professional would need to make. You could reach out to med mal attorneys to discuss in more detail than is possible in the brief format of this Q & A board. Good luck
