Do I have a case regarding becoming disabled from a routine surgery?

Question Details: Last year I had surgery on my cervical spine C3 to C7 due to some calcification. In recovery, about 14 hours after my surgery, I awakened and could feel or move nothing below my neck. After 10 days, I was sent to a spinal cord injury hospital. I spent 6 weeks there. I regained some movements on 1 side of my body. I was then sent to a rehabilitation center for the next several months. I am now permanently disabled and can no longer work. Due to my unsteady gait, I use a walker. Up until the day of my surgery, I worked as a professional 40-60 hours/week. Mentally, I'm depressed. I loved my job. Now I have to depend on others for my care. Do I have a case? If so, what would be a reasonable settlement?
