in 2002 i had a root canal done was with the same clince untill 2009, in march of 2012 i went to a different dentist where they found the file and an infection under the file. I know there is a statue of limitations of 8 years, however that does not apply to me due to the fact their is still a forin object in place.
Here is the applicable statute of limitations: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=4.16.350
I would consult a malpractice attorney immediately, as the statute in my opinion does apply to you, giving you one year from the date of discovery of the foreign object to file a lawsuit. Good luck!
Very sorry you had such a horrible experience. Please contact a medical malpractice attorney. This kind of a mistake needs to be dealt with seriously so you can recover and to make sure it never happens to another person.
