In this situation, you absolutely can file suit against the manufacturer. However, the question is whether this is a "products liability" situation, or a "medical malpractice" situation. From my limited understanding of this product, the doctor must correctly place the IUD in you for it to be effective. If the doctor does not correctly place the IUD in you, and there is no other indication of a bad design of the IUD, then your likelihood for recovering anything in a suit against the manufacturer is greatly limited. In this situation, if you came to me and asked for representation
, I would also state that I would have to sue the doctor. Why do you feel it is not the doctors fault? Let me know and I'll further comment.
