Someone I know had a cesarean section in New Jersey in 2006. Unknown to her, her tubes were tied during the surgery without consent from either her or her husband. She only found this out now during a routine examination with her ob/gyn, but she now lives outside the country in Brazil. Is there a possibility to enter into a lawsuit against the hospital/ doctor at this time? And if so can she do it with a lawyer from Brazil or would she have to find one in the US to represent her?
