Legal Question

Asked on: 5/30/13, 7:07 pm

I went to a hospital by ambulance for a very bad head ache tingling in my arm and vision loss. they pulled up to the hospital and immediatly put me in the waiting room. 2 hours later i saw a triage nurse I told her I think im having a stroke she said "your 21 your to young to have a stroke" she took my vitals and then sat me in the waiting room again. I sat there for 3 hours. Some nurse came out and made an announcement that the hospital was very busy and if our emergency wasent cruitial we should prob wait to see a normal doctor. So I left. My sight never came back and 2 days later I went to emory and the did an MRI which showed I HAD had a stroke. and now my vision is permenetly gone. What legally can I do about this?
