Legal Question

Asked on: 5/30/13, 11:26 am

My 7 year old son recently had a fishing accident in which a hook went through he's eye lid.I took him to the er and there had to wait approximately an hour and a half before he was even seen. When they finally saw he they didn't know how to remove it nor had tools to do so. They finally got a cutting instrument from the O.R. to try removing it. They only sedated him for the attempted removal did not restrain him and he moved which caused the hook to go in the eye. He had to be transported to another hospital to have it surgically removed and a three night stay. At this time we are unsure of any damage this may have caused, could i sue for medical malpractice?
