  • Do I need a medical malpractice attorney?

    I took Sovaldi, Peg Interferon and Ribavirin for my Hepatitis C. It is now over 6 months since the last dose and my leg is burning, numb and itching. Tired of living with this bullshit!! Any recourse?

    Michael’s Answer

    Go to NYC or Philly and see the top hep C doctor. Once you get that done, do a timeline, get all prescription records from your drug store, and then see a lawyer. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that most generic drug cases are not viable.
