Can i file a case against an emergency room doctor and/or staff?

Question Details: I went to the ER ended up being dehydrated but they did a bunch of blood work and CT and chest X-ray. I got a call from my doctors office that I was anemic and I made an appointment to go in because I was still having dizziness which is one reason that I went to the ER. The only report the ER sent to my doctor was blood work but my doctor's office asked me what other tests I had and then had me sign a release form. When they got my X-ray, it showed abnormal findings. I had pulmonary fibrosis which is a terminal illness. If I had not followed up with my doctor and them asking for my other test results, Iwould still not know. If they would have mentioned it in the ER, I would have remembered that my mother has it.
