Hello, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. Please give me a few minutes to write a response and identify any additional resources for you.
I am sorry to learn about this situation. Pharmaceutical litigation is a very complex matter, but you can pursue a claim for the personal injuries that you suffered.
While it is possible to try to track down a class action that may provide you with some limited relief, I have found that plaintiffs usually do much better if they contact a local plaintiff's attorney that is willing to either represent them or make a personal referral to a pharmaceutical claims attorney that will handle the claim themselves.
While you are not going to be able to recover all of the damages you suffered (personal reputation for example is not a compensable damage), you can pursue claims for monetary damages.
You can find local personal injury attorneys (also called "plaintiff's attorneys" or "trial 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).
