I found at my yearly check up it was embedded which is in their risk but when I had surgery to remove it it fell apart and now two pieces are left in me because it would prevent me from having kids if I was to remove them.
No medical device is perfectly safe and all of them involve risks. A successful products liability claim requires proof that the product was defective as designed, manufactured or marketed and that the defective condition of the product caused the harm complained of. This is usually a difficult burden for a consumer to carry. Also, the manufacturers of medical devices and prescription drugs have certain legal defenses available to them that can make a given case essentially impossible to prosecute successfully.
Beyond the above, in order to have a viable personal injury claim of any kind, one must be injured. Unless and until the two pieces left in your body cause you either injury or illness, you have no case. If and when you are either injured or made ill by the pieces that could not be removed, for your case to be viable the injury or illness would have to be serious enough that the amount of your potential financial recovery would likely significantly exceed the out-of-pocket cost of prosecuting your case, which would likely be tens of thousands of dollars.
I hope you never sustain an injury or become ill. Good luck.
