My son had bacterial meningitis which was misdiagnosed at the hospital. Can I bring a case against the emergency room doctor for the misdiagnosis of the condition?

This depends on how your son presented to the emergency room and what the findings of the physical exam were at the visit.  If these things should have caused the doctor to suspect a diagnosis of meningitis and he discharged your son without giving proper treatment, he does have a valid medical maplractice case.
