Whether you have a worthwhile claim depends on whether there is any permanent impairment or medical condition that was caused by their actions. At the outset, the fact that you had additional medical complications after they let you get back on the flight does not necessarily mean they were negligent. Based on all of the information they had, they may have made a reasonable decision. Whether it was reasonable is a medical question that must be answered by some expert in medicine. In this type of case, you need a doctor or nurse to say that it was negligent to let you continue the flight based on your symptoms. If you have no permanent medical problems as a result of the incident, then it is probably not worth pursuing. If you suffered a permanent injury, I would say it is worth getting an attorney to hire an appropriate expert to see if there is a case.
