Can I ask for a refund/fee waived for a misdiagnoses at a hospital?

Question Details: I went to the hospital after an ATV accident and was told after X-rays that it was a sprain. After going to an orthopedic doctor to get X-rays and an MRI, it was confirmed that I tore my ACL, MCL and meniscus. I also had a fractured tibia. The hospital could have at least caught the fracture I paid the hospital fee of $1800 and am now being billed for the physician fee of $880. Do I have the means to ask for a refund and for them to waive the physician fee for a misdiagnosis?
