Should we get a lawyer regarding a malpractice incident?

Question Details: My wife had a pacemaker put in at an outpatient center. During procedure doctor stated they gave her something extra bc she got anxious. While being discharged the wife was having extreme pain and difficulty breathing. We were told get prescribed meds and she should be good. Long story short. Next day went back to the doctor and found they punctured her lung during the procedure. A chest tube was put in and we stayed 5 days in the hospital. She was in pain the entire time. Now bills are coming in. What can/should we do?
