Severd Tendon in my thumb

My question is about care you receive at the ER I cut my thumb which required 6 stitches The ER Dr. had it xrayed to see if it was broken but didn't do any further tests to see if the tendon was severed. I don't have insurance and feel that is why nothing else was done I have talked to other people with similar injures who say they were checked out for severed nerves and tendons before being stitched up and sent home. There have been a few other incidences with this ER Dr. since the injury date and I would like to know if he was negligent He did tell me the first time I was there that he felt the tendon was probably severed and should be looked at. I explained I didn't have a Dr and no insurance. He told me to try talking to a few and see what I could work out on a payment plan. Unfortunately I haven't been able to resolve this and now the tendon is probably ''dried up''.
