You definitely should contact a local Medical Malpractice Attorney. Be careful, typically you only have a two and half year statute of limitations. It is far shorter if it was a municipal hospital and there is a ninety day deadline to file your Notice of Claim if it is. Call one immediately.

It is certainly worth looking into. As already indicated, you have a 2.5 year statute of limitations and shorter periods for municipal hospitals. You would need to demonstrate that the providers deviated from accepted medicAl practices in releasing you- and that the deciation caused damages.

I ups Agee with the other answers and add that I have a case currently just like this one. In addition to what everyone else has said It will likely depend I what if anything could have been done originally to save the tube and what the permanent damages are. In a ectopic pregnancy sometimes you can get rid with a pill other times you still need an operation. Get a lawyer involved who has done this before.
