What is our recourse if a C-section turned into an emergency hysterectomy?

Question Details: A wife went in for a routine C-section but upon recovery, she had low blood pressure that continued to drop drastically 2 times. The anesthesiologist was busy with other cases and was unable to attend to my wife immediately. She went into convulsions and rapid response teams were called in. Ultimately an emergency hysterectomy was needed. Her husband did not sign consent prior to surgery. The wife had to have a uterine artery stitched, which did not hold causing massive amounts of blood to flow into pelvis and back cavities. A trauma surgeon was called into the operating room to join the surgery team. An ICU stay was necessary for 3 days and it resulted with 6 units of blood needed. She is still in hospital as of today.
