Can we sue or get relief from our insurance broker who made a mistake?

Question Details: My wife had an auto accident last year. The other driver was at fault but had minimum coverage. Our underinsured limits, also minimum, were also used to settle the case. Both policies are paid in full based on the minimum coverage $25,000 each. A month after the settlement, I was reviewing current and past auto policies and noticed only the current policy had minimum limits under the underinsured coverage. I called my broker who in an email admitted that they made a mistake and increased the limits to where it was before. I'm sure that my wife would have been entitled to more money. Can I get relief going after the insurance broker?
