Can I go after the hospital that my son was born at?

Question Details: This is about suing the hospital my son was born at for negligence during labor. My girlfriend's family has a history of the women not being able to give natural birth and this is something the staff was aware of, however, they gave her the option and we tried natural birth. The problem is that, my son ended up getting stuck in her birth canal and there were many times that we were left alone for 30-45 minutes with no medical staff in the room, while she was in labor. They kept having her continue, even though there was no progress of him moving for a couple hours. Finally they decided to do a emergency C-section. When my son came out, he was having trouble breathing, had 3 skull fractures and bleeding on the brain. In result, he suffered from seizures and now has delayed vision on the left side.
