You should consult an attorney to make sure, but it is likely that suit is barred by the doctrine of sovereign immunity, which is a fancy legal way of saying you can't sue the government without its permission.
That means unless there is a law stating that lawsuit is permitted under the circumstances you described, you cannot sue (if you do file suit, it would just be dismissed).
In Texas, the law that governs this is called the Texas Tort Claims Act. An experienced attorney can go over the facts and let you know if your case fits into one of the exceptions allowing for a suit to proceed.
