Is a home inspector liable regarding mistakes and errors?

Question Details: Since purchasing my home a month ago, and after a home inspection report, I have since had some issues. I also have written evidence via email that the inspector made an "error" on the inspection report; he wrong checked a box "yes" when it was meant to be a "no". This he admitted via email. He also completely missed the attic space to which no reason why and on day one of my moving in my furnace was red tagged and I have to pay $2500 in code violation, even though it was never used at all under my ownership and the inspector's report started "satisfactory" when infact it had a gaping hole which would have give me carbon monoxide poisoning if it was switched on thank goodness on day one of me moving in, the pilot light failed. I would like to know if I have a case to sue the inspector for and if at all the inspection report is still valid for the rest of the boxes marked yes or no in the report?
