Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I am sorry to learn of your unfortunate situation.
Pharmaceutical claims can be tricky (they take a lot of money to prosecute as you need to deal with the complexities of civil procedure plus the costs and expertise of expert witnesses to prove causation and damages). In addition, you have an issue with extended statute of limitations (I don't know that your claim is going to be barred or not, many of these claims are brought under a "delayed discovery" theory), so you are going to want to speak with a local attorney to discuss your claim.
After talking to a local plaintiff's lawyer (also called "personal injury attorneys" or "trial attorneys") you may wish to proceed in an individual case (requires a lot more work and capital - they may be willing to represent you on a contingency basis - where they advance their services in exchange for a portion of your recovery), or advise that you join a class action (depending on whether or not you meet the required specifications to join the class, and whether the damages being sought in the class action are appropriate compensation for your claim (I don't advise simply jumping into a class based on an online, or television advertisement for a serious claim such as this).
You can find local attorneys using the State and local Bar Association directories, or private directories such as www.AVVO.com; www.FindLaw.com; or www.Martindale.com (I personally find www.AVVO.com to be the most user friendly).
