Can my sisters and I file a lawsuit regarding our mother's death due to possible malpractice?

Question Details:

My mother went into the hospital for pneumonia. Her physician asked us if he could do a procedure to take a look at her lungs, we agreed. While doing the procedure he decided to take a sample from her lung and collapsed it and didn't inform us of about the collapsed lung until the next day. My mother died from her injuries a few days later.
