Just because you are not eligible for the class action lawsuit doesn't mean you cannot sue. What you are being told is the drug was not made by the company that is being sued.
But you can still sue whomever prescribed the medication to you or the drug company, or both, if you were not told about this potential serious side effect.
You can call Thompson Rogers back and speak to the lawyer you spoke to and ask if they or anyone else they know would be willing to act for you on a contingency fee basis. They will have all the expert evidence they would need to argue on your behalf so that would work out well for everyone.
If they will not then call around to some other firms and see if you can find a lawyer to represent you. I am sure you will be able to find such a lawyer.
What you can do to find a lawyer is one of the following things.You can contact the Law Society and use their LawyerReferral Service.
