Can my health insurance company be liable for referring me to a medical equipment company that failed to timely provide medical equipment needed for my medical injuries?

Question Details: I am disable with Avascular Necorsis in both hips; I also have a tumor in my spine and lower back injuries. I fell and could not walk. I went to the emergency room and they informed me that I need arm crutches. I fell 4 more times, injuring my hips and back and now I need hip surgery to replace both hips. So I called my health insurer but was told that I needed to get a prescription from my doctor. I got the prescription the same day and she faxed the prescription to a company called 20 miles away from my home. I called them and was told they got the prescription and my arm crutches will be sent to me in about 7 days, via UPS. I told them please send them right away. 7 to 8 weeks later I got the wrong crutches so I called my health insurance company and they and I called the medical supply company to inform them about the mix-up. Then, 7 days after that conversation, my crutches came to my home. What I need to know is my health insurer or the medical supply company liable for my injuries? I want to file a lawsuit, ASP.
