I was just wondering if you can sue a doctor for inserting an IUD incorrectly. Because I now have and embedded IUD that need's to be removed surgically. What can I do?

Let me guess. It's a Mirena? I have had dozens of questions regarding imbeddment and even uterine perforation by the IUD. Problem is, this is an all too common occurence. The fact that it became imbedded does not mean necessarily that the insertion was done incorrectly. It can be placed properly but contractions of the uterus or even the slightest trauma can move it around and getting stuck is something that can't be foreseen.  If the problem began immediately after insertion it might indicate that they did not carefully "sound" the uterus(check its shape) and it was inserted by other than a gyn, who knows, there might have been some negligence. But, no lawyer is interested in suing for you because at worst you will need some quick surgery and should have no long term harm.
