My question involves medical malpractice in the state of: Texas
I am a mother of five with the last child resulting from a failed tubal ligation procedure. WIth my fourth child I started dilating early and went into labor preterm. It was a very difficult pregnancy and me and my husband suffered a lot during and afterwards and decided not to have anymore children for the future child and my sake.
I originally discussed and the tubal procedure and signed papers with my doctor who unfortunately, two weeks before the operation, could not perform the operation and called on an associate. I agreed to his colleague performing the surgery under the impression he would do the same procedure my original doctor stated. The day of the surgery the nurses informed me several times that once I had this operation I could no longer have any more children and that the operation could not be reversed. I had the surgery and 10 months later found out I was pregnant. After having the child I had a second tubal and the doctor who performed this surgery said one of the clips was not closed on the tubes.
I would like to know who is at fault and if I could persue it legally. Finding out I was pregnant again really took a toll our life. THe hospital where I had the first surgery cannot find my files with my signatures for the first surgery.
