Yes, please have a look at http://wiki.debian.org/binNMU. Also, when you
upload a new version to fix this uninstallability, it's a good opportunity
to make your package binNMUable so that this does not happen again.
(There are tips on the linked page about how to do it, and lintian will
warn you if it's still not binNMUable.)
