A: This is something that would likely require a medical opinion and additional information regarding the original examination(s) and diagnostic tests made eight years ago. It could be difficult for an attorney to offer you a "yes" or "no" answer based on the brief information here. One option is to reach out to med mal firms. Free initial consults are normally provided, and with the pandemic, many firms are offering such consults virtually. Good luck
