I didn't have this happen to me, but I wanted to tell you that I'm here in the world today because of an IUD failure.
Back in the seventies there was an IUD know as the Dalcon Shield that turned out not to be quite as effective as hoped and VOILA! Here I am.
My mom has told me that she had a lot of the same concerns that you are expressing, and there is some risk involved with a pregnancy that begins while an IUD is in place, but I'm living proof that it can turn out to be totally uneventful as well. I remember her telling me that the risk was mostly involved with the process of removing the IUD in order to allow the pregnancy to continue. If your IUD is no longer in place that risk would not even apply to you.
